This is a fine decorative map of the Lüneburg Heath and the vicinity including Hamburg, Lüneburg, Bremen, Hannover and Magdeburg. It is beautifully engraved to show topography and cities and embellished with two cartouches. The map was based on the work of the 16th century German cartographer Johann Mellinger. Latin text on verso.
Fine impression and lovely original color. The bottom centerfold is repaired with linen, well away from the map, and the top centerfold is separated, also not affecting the map.
