This is a splendid, two-sheet (joined) map of the Brandenburg region. The map is filled with much finer detail than normally found on maps of this period, particularly the rivers, steams, lakes and forests. The large title cartouche features swashbucklers, putti and the crest of Brandenburg.


Condition: B+

Sharp impression with original outline color and minor offsetting. There is some old paper reinforcement of the margins and the joint.

Estimate: $300 - $400

Sold for: $220
