Decorative example of Doncker's map of the Western Mediterranean, including Italy, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica and the Balaeric Islands, along with the contigous coasts of Spain, Italy, France, Dalmatia and North Africa. From Doncker's rare Nieuw Groot Sturmaans Straets-Book, published in Amsterdam. Doncker's sea charts are among the earliest and scarcest sea charts of the region, and reflect both a fine engraving style and precise work. The present example has some archival restorations to the left and right margins (not affecting the printed image) and one worm track below the compass rose on the left side of the map, but is still a nice decorative example of this scarce map.
