Seller instigated the first English maritime atlas, in an effort to compete with the successful Dutch maps at the time. This print was published in "A New Systeme of Geography...", circa 1690. A light crease along the center indicates an original centerfold. Small crease to lower right corner. Paper is splitting along lower edge of plate line.
