Very detailed and attractive chart of the island of Rugen in the Baltic Sea from a map by Eihard Lubin. Many place names are located on this informative chart. It is ornamented with a decorative strapwork cartouche topped with a crest and lions, an elaborate compass rose and ships in the sea. The map is flanked with 30 named coats-of-arms and is a beautiful example of Blaeu's work. Dutch text on verso.
Sharp impression, old color and wide margins. There is a hint of faint foxing, else fine.
