This is a beautiful map of Schleswig-Holstein from the city of Hamburg on the Elbe River and north to Denmark. The map is filled with detail of roads, fortified cities, small towns and even names the islands in the Elbe. A block of armorials lies in the Baltic Sea and an allegorical title cartouche, representing the pastoral bounty of the region, fills the corner below the Elbe.
