Superb miniature map of the coastal region of Poland. The map is nicely engraved with a stippled sea and a large strapwork style title cartouche. The map was engraved by the brothers Ambrose and Ferdinand Arsenius who had been assistants to Frans Hogenburg and co-engravers of Ortelius' folio Theatrum. This series of maps was accompanied by text by Michel Coignet and was published by Jan B. Vrients. Latin text on verso.

There are some ink smudges in the blank margins, well away from the map.
