This is a very scarce and superb panorama of Vienna, as seen from the north. The cathedrals and other major buildings are named. The sky is filled with an elaborate ribbon style cartouche and a coat of arms. Two sheets joined, as issued.
These double-page folding panoramas rarely survived due to their size and this is a fine example, despite a few minor flaws. Slight toning along fold and small hole on fold repaired.
