This handsome and nicely detailed map of Lower Saxony and Westphalia includes the cities of Oldenburg, Hannover, Duisburg, and Cologne. Nicely engraved it shows rivers, lakes, mountains, forests and cities and is embellished with a decorative cartouche.
Nice impression and original outline color. There is some paper restoration in the blank margins, not affecting the map.
