Attractive mid-18th century map of the Iberian Peninsula
Ptolemaic map of the Iberian Peninsula originally published by Mercator in his 1578 edition of Ptolemy’s Geographia.
The pictorial cartouche is flanked with two bare-breasted sphinxes, and the sea is adorned with a ship and a pair of sea monsters, one of whom looks like a dog with fur and floppy ears.
A few creases and other minor wear, very good.
