This is one of the oldest books I have ever found it was printed in 1736
It has a few plates and it contains the original folding map.
I have posted a map from the book.
I am quite sure it is only worth A hundred dollars or so.
I paid $5.00 and found a nice piece.
Called Techlamus son of Ulysses.

    Very nice find! The book is quite beat up and a large part of the title page is missing. The risk is that this might only be Vol I out of II.. You should check page numbers, or actually read the text towards the end and see if it matches the absolute ending.

    The folding map is what boosts the awesomeness here. Could you show a picture?
