Die Insel Island

Author:
Alain Manesson Mallet
Country:
Germany
Publication year:
1686
 
The description of the universe by Mallet was published with German names besides the French ones and was then called Welt-Beschreibung. The map of Iceland from that book is a mirror image of the one in the first edition. The cartographer must have engraved the plate straight after the original.
