Description
Spain, Noordwest-Spanje; Johannes Jansonius - Gallaecia Regnum - 1647
Old-time colored map of a part of Spain

Condition: reasonable/good, but brown discolouration. The green colour has rubbed off on the opposite side of the map. The map therefore has minor damage that is reinforced on the back.

Handsome map of northwestern Spain, extending from the Asturias de Oviedo region and Aviles in the Northeast to Bayona and the Portuguese border on the South, centred on Santiago di Compostella. Finely decorated with the title cartouche displayed in a seashell, sailing ships, compass roses, putti and a coat of arms.
