This strongly engraved map of the fabled area in present-day Romania shows mountain ranges, forests and the fertile river valleys. There is a large drape-style title cartouche in the lower right and two other cartouches at left.
Original color on watermarked paper with light toning, one tiny worm hole in image, and archivally repaired centerfold separations at top and bottom that just pass the neatline.
