Impressive bird's-eye plan of the city of Strasbourg with its magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame. A network of canals and walls surrounds the medieval city. Two coats of arms including the royal German crest, a strapwork cartouche and a couple overlooking the city decorate the sheet.
Slight toning of centerfold, else very good.
