This is a superb map of southern Sweden extending to show Copenhagen. A large inset includes a map of the northern part of Halland. The map is richly engraved and adorned with an elaborate cartouche with the arms of Halland, Scania and Blekinge and a great scene showing a family of merfolk with a rich bounty of fish.
