Handsome map of Moravia, the southeastern part of the Czech Republic, showing its six political divisions. The major cities are Brno (Brunn) and Olomouc (Olmutz), and there are hundreds of other cities and villages located. The map is beautifully engraved and embellished with a very decorative cartouche composed of allegorical figures and a coat-of-arms. In the lower left, a pastoral scene with a river god adorns the distance scale.
A dark impression with attractive color and a tiny repaired fold separation that just touches the neatline at top.
