This copper engraved map covers modern-day Czech Republic with parts of southern Poland and Slovakia. The map (10 x 9") is on a beautifully engraved sheet with text panels at both sides, all surrounded by elaborate borders that include scenes of putti, globes, instruments, etc.
Fine impression and original margins with extremely lovely later color on the border. Fine, except for a small, unobtrusive spot between text and border at right.
