Interesting bird's-eye plan that depicts the city of Strasbourg, whose original name was Argentoratum. The plan shows the walls, bridges, fortifications and only the major buildings and churches with a key at upper left.
Lightly toned with a few faint spots. Tape repair of a couple of edge tears, well away from map. Remnants of hinge tape on verso.
