Magnificent map of Scandinavia and the Baltic States with a brilliant figurative armorial cartouche dedicating the map to Charles XII, King of Sweden. The map is filled with excellent detail of the topography and the cities, towns and villages. Engraved on two sheets, joined together. There is evidence that the imprint of Louis Renard was been removed under Delisle's imprint, evidence of the failed relationship, in which Renard sold Delisle's maps in the Dutch market.
