Tiny map depicting the duchies of Oswieczin and Zator in the southern part of Poland, showing a portion of the Carpathian Mountains at bottom. The map was engraved by the brothers Ambrose and Ferdinand Arsenius who had been assistants to Frans Hogenburg and co-engravers of Ortelius' folio Theatrum. This series of maps was accompanied by text by Michel Coignet and was published by Jan B. Vrients. Italian text on verso.
