Johannes Jansson's chart of the western Mediterranean, from the Straits of Gibraltar to Italy and the coast of Dalmatia, including the coasts of northern Africa. Thus good detail is given of the coasts of Spain, southern France, the Balearics, Corsica, Sardinia and Italy. The title appears in a cartouche at upper left flanked by figures in traditional dress and an extensive numbered key of islands is given beneath the title cartouche and to its right. The chart is traversed by rhumb lines, adding to its decorative appeal but also providing a navigational purpose. Illustrative of the so-called "golden age" of Dutch cartography in the seventeenth century. This example with Latin text to the verso and repairs to the centrefold and other minor areas of paper weakness.
