Ptolemaic map of the Iberian Peninsula originally published by Mercator in his 1578 edition of Ptolemy's Geographia.
The pictorial cartouche is flanked with two bare-breasted sphinxes, and the sea is adorned with a ship and a pair of sea monsters, one of whom looks like a dog with fur and floppy ears.
A few creases and other minor wear, very good.
