Very decorative map of Europe. The surrounding engravings frame the map with medallion portraits and coats of arms down each side, plus an erupting volcano and it is set against a background of statues and allegorical figures with two sets of cherubs in front engaged in studying writing, the arts and geometry. Hand colored.
