Quad's map of Scandinavia follows the work of Gerard de Jode. Despite its small size, the map retains much of the nomenclature and geographical details from De Jode's folio-sized map. The shape of Norway and Sweden is still rudimentary, with enlarged lakes inland and loosely defined islands surrounding the mainland. Engraved by Johannes Bussemacher. German text on verso.

References: Ginsberg #37; Mickwitz & Miekkavaara #239-75.

Condition: B+

A nice impression on watermarked paper with minor toning along the centerfold and light soiling. There are two tiny tears and one small hole along the centerfold, as well as a short tear confined to the bottom blank margin.

Estimate: $275 - $350

Sold for: $170
