An attractive early 18th century map by this important German cartographer. The map illustrates the Christian kingdoms in Europe and is characteristically filled with details, even for such a general map. The large title cartouche features a personification of Europa surrounded by adorable putti nestled in the clouds.
The centerfold has been reinforced and there is some soil in the margins.
