Towns, political boundaries, rivers, forests and mountains are well detailed. At bottom left there is a decorative title cartouche flanked by two heralding angels mounted on hippocampi. The alternate Latin title, Tabula Regni Poloniae, Ducatus Lithuaniae &c, is in the top margin. Engraved by Johannes Condet.


Condition: B+

A crisp impression with full original color, an extraneous crease near the center of the map, and a faint damp stain that just enters the neatline at top left. There is marginal soiling and a couple short edge tears that are confined to the blank margins.
