A charming miniature map of southern Poland centered approximately on Krakow. Although Krakow is depicted on the shore of a river, it is shown well south of the Vistula River on which it is actually situated. The map is decorated with a strapwork cartouche incorporating the title and distance scale. French text on verso.

A nice impression with attractive color and a hint of toning.
