Fabulous map is centered on Nuremberg with the surrounding countryside. The map is decorated with a large title cartouche surmounted by a trumpeting angel, a coat of arms and a smaller text cartouche. At the left is a large inset plan of the city with a key to the major buildings. Spanish text on verso.
This map has a lovely impression and great original color. There are a couple of small wormholes in the map that are only visible when held up to the light.
