An attractive bird's-eye plan of old Vienna and its fortifications and the surrounding suburbs with a detailed panorama below. The map has a numbered and lettered key to 32 locations in a decorative cartouche held aloft by an eagle and three putti. Beautiful baroque engravings flanked by soldiers and weaponry flank the uncolored view.
Paper is sound with original color. Some creasing and old repairs of 2 tears entering map about 5". Brown paper adhered to edges on verso from an old framing. Needs and deserves the assistance of a paper conservator.
