A handsome and beautifully engraved copper plate map of Denmark along with parts of Sweden at top right. It depicts common roads, royal post roads, and post vessel routes. A note at bottom states that "The Duchy of Lauenburg was annexed to the Kingdom of Denmark by treaty with the King of Prussia, signed June 4th, 1815." Wyld assumed management of Faden's establishment in 1823 so this is an early reissue.
