This large and boldly engraved map centers on St. Polten and details Lower Austria, along the course of the Danube River. The map extends as far south as Pinkhenfeldt and west to Ens and Steyr. Excellent detail features the mountains, forests, rivers, roads, villages and fortified cities. The large and very decorative allegorical cartouche is surrounded with cherubs, putti, a river god, and a coat of arms.
Watermarked paper with wide, original margins and some soiling, primarily confined to top blank margin.
