This bird's-eye view illustrates the Alsatian village of Rouffach. Set amidst the equally detailed countryside, there are individual renderings of buildings, the city walls, the Chateau d’Isenbourg and the river. A long flowing banner bearing the name of the town and the date 1548 runs across the top. Italian text on verso.
A clean example with some of the usual toning on the centerfold. The margins have a few holes and some loss, one at the top affecting some text, but not the view.
