Rare, early map of Iceland. Seems to be prepared prior to any actual surveys and reflects very sketchy knowledge of the island. Delightful depictions of topography, volcanoes, villages and elaborate cities. Several icebergs are shown floating off the coast. Engr. dim. 24.7 x 17.5 cm, on sheet 28.5 x 22 cm with full margins. One small pinhole in map, otherwise Excellent.
