A handsome, matched pair of small maps focuses on these historic regions of the Czech Republic. The Bohemian map is centered on Prague. Among the many cities and villages on the map of Moravia are Olomouc (Olmuntz) and Brno (Brinn) and many prominent cities that don't appear on modern maps. They are finely engraved with mountains and forests and decorated with strapwork title and scale cartouches. French text on verso, each together with an additional sheet of text.
There are some faint damp stains in the blank margins.
