Bottom edge trimmed unevenly; a few tiny chips at edges. A couple of short mended tears at edges; three uneven creases running vertical length of map. Some light marginal foxing, soiling. Two pieces of archival cloth tape at top edge of verso. Very good. Taken from a Dutch bible with text on verso. With depictions of the celestial hemispheres and figures representing the four known continents. An updated version of Visscher's Orbis Terrarum Tabula Recens Emendata, which appeared in 1663.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
