An attractive example of Blaeu's map after that of Ortelius showing all northwest Africa, then described as the kingdoms of Fez and Morocco. This example is of a late printing, laid on backing (a long time ago) and with old creases and some surface dirt. Despite this the map is interesting, decorative and priced very reasonably.
