Three fine maps of the Baltic and Polish regions printed on a single folio sheet. The top map features Pomerania and is based on the Peter Artopaus map published in 1550 by Sebastian Munster. The map of Livonia was drawn by Johannes Portantius and may be based on the lost maps of the region by Marcus Ambrosius and Caspar Henneberger. The map of Oswieczensis was drawn by the Polish cartographer Stanislav Porebski in 1563.
