Description

Detailed 2-sheet map of the Mediterranean and North Africa, by Richard Blome.

The map extends from the Morocco and the Straits of Gibralter to Cyprus and the Red Sea, centered on Sicily and Malta. Includes many sailing ships, sea monsters, lions, elephants, ostriches, etc. Perhaps the earliest map of the region to appear in an English atlas.

Blome's Geographical Description of the World in Four Parts was the first English Atlas of the the World engraved and published in England. This map was engraved by Francis Lamb.
