Magnificent map of all of Denmark, the northern tip of Germany and the southern tip of Sweden. The land is fully engraved with mountains, forests and cities, while the sea is filled with various types of ships, including two engaged in battle. The title cartouche is quite elaborate with a host of livestock, putti, and two wild men with clubs standing guard over the coat of arms in the center. The crest of King Christain V balances the left of the map.
