A superb map of Hungary, Romania and the Balkans dense with place names and topographical features. At bottom are two very graphic and historically interesting cartouches. Surrounding the title are scenes including a portrait of the king of Hungary, a soldier, the personification of Justice, river gods, and numerous putti each holding a herald representing the neighboring regions. Surrounding the distance scale is a group of men engaged in wine tasting, hunting and fishing.
Small stain in top border, still very good.
