Superb map of the Prussian Empire, which is present-day Poland, Lithuania and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad (here Konigsberg). The entire Baltic sea is filled with a fabulous title cartouche surrounded by figures in a cloud background. The map is filled with detail, both political and topographical.
Old paper repairs on verso, including one on a tear extending about 2" into the map at bottom left of centerfold.
