Title: 'Cambriae Typus'. Descriptive text in Latin on verso.

An ancient map of Wales, originally prepared by the Welsh cartographer Humphrey Lhuyd and reproduced for famous the Mercator Jansson atlas of 1642. The map is decorated with a fine cartouche, part of a compass-rose and a sea monster.

The condition of this map is excellent and the paper is of good quality with little age toning. There are few discernible faults. Full margins with a faint water stain in the corners.
