This map of Scandinavia depicts key towns and political divisions. The map includes an inset map of Iceland that shows part of Greenland and Jan Mayen Island, here still called Trinity I despite the fact that the name had officially changed to Jan Mayen in the early 17th century.
Original color on watermarked paper with minor soiling along centerfold at bottom and a centerfold separation that enters 1/4" into image at bottom that has been closed on verso with archival tape. There are remnants of non-archival tape in top corners of sheet, far from map.
