VALENTIA REGNUM; Contestani, Ptol. Edentani, Plin.
Highly decorative map centered on Valencia and extending south to Murcia and Orihuella and North to the Cenia. Map embellished with sea monster, ships, rhumb lines emanating from compass rose and ornate title cartouche with the arms of Valencia. The map is very detailed and gives many place names, smaller villages or settlements. Latin text to verso. The map provides us with many details, like place names of cities and villages, castles and monastries, rivers, lakes, woods and mountains. Although it is often difficult to distinguish between Jansson and Blaeu, the compass, the lettering and the coats of arms suggest Jansson. (Moreton and Bannister, p304)
