It depicts the whole of the ancient world with limited identification of regions and several areas labelled as 'Unknown to the Ancients'. The map measures approximately 360mm x 195mm and is uncoloured as published, blank verso. Condition report: Good condition, small closed tear at the right edge of the sheet; slight offsetting from where the map has been folded. There are several fold creases and it is trimmed close to the neatline of the map at the bottom and left edges of the sheet. This is to be expected as this map was originally published in a 8vo volume (approx. leaf size 12cm x 20cm) so the sheet on which the map was printed was required to be folded and trimmed to fit.
