A handsome map of Silesia that is part of present-day Poland. The map is focused on the Oder River and is filled with details of roads, towns and pictorial topography. The interesting title cartouche features a scene of peasants drinking Schnapps, for which the region was well known.
Faint scattered foxing, mostly on verso and in blank margins.
