This superb map covers the area around Bergen with graphic topographical detail. It extends to include the mountain plateau that is now the Hardangervidda National Park. It is richly embellished with title and distance scale cartouches surrounded by putti, and sailing ships in the sea.
A sharp impression on watermarked paper with wide margins and a hint of offsetting.
