Hi my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. This is an older map done in Germany 1930s and was a print of the original map hand colored and framed it has a value of 275.00-325.00 in todays market. The name "orbis terrae compendiosa descrip" which means.........A diagram (descriptio) of the world (orbis terrarum) shown (compresa) - not a literal translation, but that's the jest of the translation. Done in two flat hemispheres with additional detail with the smaller circles on top and bottom It is in good condition and these are nice pieces to hang on your wall and enjoy.
