This striking map of Portugal comes to us by the hand of engraver Baptista van Doetecum. With a westward orientation Portugal is displayed with exceptional detail as the country is color coded into four sections, showing important cities, villages, and an elaborate tributary system feeding the Atlantic. Three strapwork title cartouches adorn the map along with an elaborate compass rose, sailing ship, the crest of Portugal, and monstrous sea creature.

Condition: Map is in B condition, with wide margins and lovely hand coloring.
