This large map covers the region of present-day Poland, Lithuania, Belarus and part of Ukraine based on sources including Starovolsk, Beauplan, Hartnoch and Hevelius. It is still filled with topographical information, roads, forests and place names. The title cartouches is richly engraved with figures and is balanced by a decorative distance scale cartouche. An alternate Latin title, "Tabula Regni Poloniae, Ducatus Lithuaniae &c.", can be found in the upper margin.
A crisp impression with original color in the map and later color in the cartouches. There are several short centerfold separations that have been professionally repaired.
