The topography is shown in a more animated style than is normally seen on maps of this era. Engraved by P. Starckman, it provides excellent detail of towns, villages, churches, forts and even identifies different religious sects. The map features a key to 63 locations, a decorative title cartouche, and a nice compass rose that orients north to the left.
