VECTIS INSULA Anglice / THE ISLE OF WIGHT, Amsterdam.
A charming decorative map of the Isle of Wight, off the southern coast of England. The graphic modeling of topographical features in relief, such as mountains, seaside cliffs and rocks, enhances the map's attractiveness, as do the sailing ships plying the waters of Mare Britannicum.
