Map 121 is the Marocchi Regnum map [8617:351] which is more uncommon as according to van der Kogt usually the Fessae Regum map is found in this atlas. The map is slightly larger in size and therefor the lower margin is cut into the lower scale border.

.Using the title page of the Latin edition, past-over slip for French text "De Geuerard Mercator..".
The allegorical engraving with a Latin epigram slightly damaged. Several or the maps have some crude original out line colouring. Several pages have pencil annotations. The water staining throughout the book is largely marginal and light and has not affected the quality of the paper,. Binding and paper are sound.
