In the upper right corner, a Christian fleet defeats Turkish forces. A second cartouche features a Grand Master of the Knights of Malta and a pair of putti. Below the main map are a plan of Valetta and a chart of the coats of arms of the Grand Masters of the Knights of Malta. The color of the principal map, city plan, chart and cartouches is original. A magnificent Malta map.
