This is a large, attractive map of Denmark, Sleschwig-Holstein and southern Sweden with good detail throughout. The title cartouche features the Danish coat of arms and is supported by the traditional woodwose with a variety of farm animals in the background.
A nice impression with original color, refreshed in a few spots where repairs have been made, and light soiling primarily near the borders. There are professional repairs to a centerfold separation that enters 2.5" into map at bottom and small chips in top corners with a small amount of border in facsimile. Remargined at left with a portion of neatline in facsimile as well.
