First state of this rare map of Biscaya and Navarra, likely offered originally as a separately issued map and primarily bound into composite atlases of the period.
Includes a striking dedication cartouche to Philip V of Spain, with the young King shown in full-length illustration. Decorative cartouches and coat of arms of Bay of Biscay and Navarre. The map is beautifully engraved and exhibits the detail and fine craftsmanship which is characteristic of Nolin's work. We were unable to locate any dealer or auction records for the map in the past 25 years, although we note an example in an old undated Holger Christoph auction catalog.
