This handsome map covers from the British Isles and Iceland through Scandinavia, the Baltic, and the European parts of Russia. It is adorned with a lovely title cartouche, a sailing ship, and a scales cartouche topped with the symbol of the Jesuits. Heinrich Scherer, professor of mathematics at Munich, was a devout Jesuit whose work emphasized the Catholic hierarchy and the spread of Jesuit missions throughout the world.
Just a hint of toning along centerfold at top.
