Brilliantly colored map of the northeast coast of Germany, showing Lubeck and a bit further down the left side is Lauenburg. Rostock is protectively situated inland from the sea. In the upper right is the island of Rugen. At the bottom center is Wittenberg and in the lower right is Strasburg and Rutenberg. A rich baroque title cartouche, decorated with cherubs, lies in the Baltic Sea with sailing ships and simple compass rose. A very lovely example of this striking map.
