A vibrant little map of Danzig, present day Gdansk, shows the extensive fortifications and shipping lanes. A compass rose orients the plan with north in the upper right corner. The title is contained in a banner style cartouche and a coat of arms tops the distance scale.
A dark impression on a sheet that was issued folding, now flattened. Three are a couple of tiny wormholes in the left margin, not affecting the map.
