Islande

Author:
Henri du Sauzet
Publication year:
1734 (about)
 
A copy of Gerhard Mercator's map of Iceland, probably drawn after the original from 1595 rather than the map from Atlas Minor. The engraving isn't as fine as on the model but the cartouche is well decorated.
This map is some reprint of the chart that appeared in a map collection by Henri du Sauzet.
