A nicely colored, detailed map of northern Germany showing the area from the coastline of the Baltic Sea, south to Wittenberg, and from Lubeck in the west, to Kalis in the east. Many place names, roads, lakes and cities such as Berlin and Brandenburg are located. This handsome map is embellished with an elegant, uncolored title cartouche, compass rose and rhumblines, decorative distance scale cartouche, and sailing ships in the Baltic.
A centerfold split in lower margin just reaches neatline, else a fine copy with full margins, crisp impression and fine original coloring.
