This sharply engraved pair of maps detail the former extent of the Archbishopric of Cologne along the Rhine River valley from Wesel in the north to Koblenz on the southern map, including a multitude of cities and towns along the way. The topography is shown pictorially, and in the lower left of the southern map is an inset of the whole course of the Rhine. Both maps have richly engraved cartouches and stand on their own.
Both maps have dark impressions on strong sheets of laid paper. Map 1 has some minor marginal stains and one short tear in the lower left margin, not affecting the map.
