This rare and spectacular map of Iceland was published 1761 in Nuremberg by the Heirs of Homann. The map was compiled according to Danish surveys, and lovers of Icelandic sagas will recognize many of the sites depicted.

The map is more scientific than many previous similar versions. Many of the countless volcanoes which populate the island are depicted and named, as are Iceland’s many fjords. Regional boundaries are marked and all cities, towns and settlements are included. The topographical details of the mountainous regions of the map create a strong image of the ruggedness of the island. Major rivers and other waterways are included, and roads for travelling throughout the country are delineated. Explanatory details in the lower right quadrant of the map are in Latin, as is the title.  

Condition: This map is in A condition with original color over a sharp plate impression on clean and sturdy paper. Margins are full on all sides and there are no tears or holes.
