Lower Saxony and Mecklenburg are the central theme of this appealing map. It covers from Lubeck and the Baltic Sea in the north to Celle, Rathenow and Spandau in the south. Adorned with a strapwork title cartouche that incorporates the distance scale. This is from the first edition, with Latin text on verso.
A nice impression with very light soiling. Cardinal directions and page number written in manuscript ink in blank margins.
