Exquisite map centered on Syaelland with the topography, cities and towns meticulously engraved. The map is extravagantly adorned with fifteen different ships and boats, a variety of sea monsters, heralds, three cartouches, each flanked by figures, and a distance scale held by a surveyor. A very fine example of the mapmaker's art.

Japanese tissue reinforcing centerfold and margins extended at bottom sides, evidently to repair damaged corners - not affecting map.
