Striking map focuses on Denmark, but extends from the German coastline north to include part of the Norwegian coastline and the southern part of Sweden including Stockholm. It is based upon Cornelis Anthoniszoon's Caerte van Oostand, and maps by Sgrothen, Olaus and Jordanus. The map is decorated with a fine title cartouche and large sailing ship. Latin text on verso.
