The Rhine River cuts across this map from south of Bonn, centered on Cologne and north to Wesel. The map extends into The Netherlands and Belgium. Loaded with topographic information, the map names hundreds of cities, towns, rivers and lakes. Putti display coats of arms around the decorative title cartouche and also adorn the scale cartouche in the lower left.
Nice impression and original color. Couple small spots in uncolored portions of map.
