Handsome map of Moravia based on Paulus Fabritius' map of 1569, revised by Crato. The map is filled with detail of the cities, rivers, mountains and forests and adorned with a large strapwork title cartouche, an interesting key in banner form, and a distance scale incorporating the coat of arms and dividers. Latin text on verso.
