A crisply engraved map of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and Ukraine from Sanson's cartography. A figurative cartouche fills the upper corner. Titled in top margin: Regni Poloniae Magni Ducatus Lithuaniae Reliquarumque Polonis Subditarum Regionum Tabula.
The map has original color which has oxidized, resulting in some cracks, now patched on the verso with a variety of archival tape and paper. There are some stains and a number of small wormholes. The margins have been trimmed, but are still adequate for framing.
