Handsome map of the region around Strasbourg featuring a decorative cartouche enclosing the title and scale. Fully engraved to illustrate the rivers, forests and mountains and locate hundreds of tiny villages. French text verso.
Original color with slight oxidation resulting in minor cracks along centerfold that have been stabilized with archival tape. Margins trimmed but still more than adequate for framing.
