This is an excellent example of the height of decorative Dutch map-making. It is embellished with two royal crests, the arms of seven noble families, Cambridge University and 16 colleges. The map itself is filled with detail of the countryside including forests, parks, cities and villages. German text on verso.
Some light foxing in the margins and some pencil markings on the map.
