Large map covers the region of present-day of Poland, Lithuania, Belarus and part of Ukraine based on the cartography of Sanson, though not so densely engraved as Sanson's map. It is still filled with topographical information, roads, forests and place names. Both the title and scale cartouches are richly engraved with figures. An alternate Latin title, "Tabula Regni Poloniae, Ducatus Lithuaniae &c.", can be found in the upper margin.
