"Basse Allemaigne divisee par ses Estats", Sanson, Nicolas
Period: 1652 (dated)
Color: Hand Color
21 x 15 inches
53.3 x 38.1 cm
Attractive map of Germany densely engraved to show cities, towns, forests and topography. The map is typical of Sanson's style; concentrating on geographical information rather than embellishment. The title cartouche is very simple and the only other decoration is a compass rose.
