Bird's-eye plan of the important port located on tidal flats in the glacial valley of the River Elbe. The plan is finely rendered to show the city walls, streets and canals and the surrounding countryside with gardens, textile mills, and ship yards. Engraved by C. Inselin and published by Nicolas de Fer, Geographer at Louis XIV's court. He was one of the most prolific publishers of plans of European cities in the late seventeenth century.
