Two cartouches, each held by three puttos, give descriptions and mileage. The Mediterranean Sea has several vessels, among them St. Paul's departure from the Holy Land.

This attractive and rather rare map has an original loss of less than a millimeter along the centerfold, a repaired tear in the lower right reaching about two cm into the image (hardly visible from the front) and usual side folds to fit the book size. Lower right and left corners have minimal margin loss. A general patina of browning.
