A lovely depiction of the countryside surrounding Erfurt in the Thuringia region of east central Germany. City prospect of Erfurt stretches below the map, identifying the Cyriacsburg castle and St. Petersburg cathedral. Mythological figures and putti embellish the text and title cartouche.
The impression is a bit light and there is some toning along the centerfold.
