Lovely map of the Metz Region, centered on Metz and the Moselle River Valley. Richly embellished in each corner with coats of arms, distance scales and a garland draped title cartouche. Latin text on verso.
Lovely original color. Paper is thin along centerfold where the backstrap has been removed. Small manuscript notation in brown ink in cartouche attributing the map to Hondius.
