Bold map of the region centered on Belgrade and the Danube River. The map is graphically engraved to illustrated mountains, rivers, lakes, swamps, modern and Roman roads, fortifications, monasteries, cities and villages. The superb title cartouche commemorates the Treaty of Passarowitz (1718) when the Austrians took the region from the Ottoman Turks.
Fine sharp impression with old repair on short fold separation and a couple of unobtrusive spots at bottom.
