This striking map focuses on Denmark, but extends from the German coastline north to include part of the Norwegian coastline and the southern part of Sweden, including Stockholm. The map is based upon Cornelis Anthoniszoon's Caerte van Oostand, and maps by Sgrothen, Olaus and Jordanus. A decorative title cartouche and large sailing ship complete the composition. Latin text on verso.
