Description

Interesting and attractive map of Portugal with west at the top, four sailing ships on the ocean along with a large figure of Neptune riding a sea monster, holding a trident and shield.

There are two coats-of-arms and two compass roses, and a large pictorial title cartouche featuring two men in what looks to be Ottoman dress using navigational instruments.
