This large and boldly engraved map centers on St. Polten and details Lower Austria along the course of the Danube River. The map extends as far south as Pinkafeld and west to Enns and Steyr. Excellent detail features the mountains, forests, rivers, roads, villages, and fortified cities. The large and very decorative allegorical cartouche is surrounded with cherubs, putti, a river god, and a coat of arms.
A clean and bright example with light printer's ink reside and a previous owner's stamp on verso.
