Issued c. 1710, London. Map by Moll.
Early 18th century engraved map with attractive hand color. Inset at top right focusing on the coast of central Italy around ancient Rome.
Bottom left corner trimmed close with tiny bit of loss to corner neat line which has been nicely re-instated and almost invisible to the eye if the map were framed for display.
Remains a nice looking example with a pleasing age patina. Any age flaws mostly minor and easy to overlook or forgive.
Original fold lines as issued.
