This is a great map of the Bishopric of Liege, a historic state of the Holy Roman Empire. It covers most of the present Belgian provinces of Liege and Limburg, roughly centered on the Muese River valley including Namur, Liege and Maestricht. Several other fortified cities are graphically depicted along with roads, forests, marshes, rivers, hills and hundreds of villages. English text on verso with a description of the region.
The right side margin is trimmed into the neatline at bottom, apparently as issued.
