Comments: Beautifully detailed map showing the area between the the Black and Caspian Seas including modern day Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey. Full original margins have minor stains. Based on the plates by Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) who is considered the founder of the French school of cartography. In reaction to the prevailing trend of Dutch lavishness, Sanson favored minimal details, focusing rather on accurate cartography than ornament.

I have just received the copy of Mysterious Island by Jules Verne which I ordered previously. The book arrived in the condition in which it was sent and I am very impressed with the condition of the book. I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance and will certainly order again! Billy Dinwoodie, Johannesburg South Africa
