A very attractive 1959 pictorial oenological map of Portugal by Mário Costa promoting Portuguese Wines. The map covers all of Portugal with lavish illustrations in pastel tones emphasizing the various wine regions, from the Vino Verde produces in the north to an inset of Madeira. The maps title, acting as a border, is written in Portugese, English, French, and German. The map was drawn by Mário Costa (1903 – 1975), printed by Artistas Reunidos of Porto, and commissioned by the Junta Nacional do Vinho. The OCLC identifies only 4 examples held in institutional collections.
Generally good. A couple of minor marginal tears repaired with archival tissue on verso.
