Magnae Britanniae et Hiberniae Nova Descriptio.
Frankfurt: c.1677 - Size: 340 × 395 mm. Copperplate engraving. Minor water stains, some margins are slim, otherwise a good example. An intricate and interesting map of The British Isles by Merian, a reduced version of Jan Jansson's earlier work. The map is very skillfully engraved, and is complemented by a number of decorative features; including a royal coat of arms, a rococo style title cartouche, a compass rose, galleons sailing off the coasts of Ireland and England and an inset map of The Orkney Islands.
