Woodblock map that details the valleys of the Mosel and Rhine Rivers in Rhineland-Palatinate and Westphalia. The towns of Bonn, Cologne, Boppard, and many more all have small building icons to indicate size. North is toward the bottom. Text on verso and a terrific illustration of a huge sea monster devouring a man.
Crisp impression on hand laid paper with full margins. Some text show-through as is normal for these maps.
