This finely engraved map illustrates the geographical regions of Europe that, in ancient times, were east of Gaul and outside of Roman control. It extends from eastern France through Poland and from the North Sea to the Adriatic. It shows the various tribes, towns, and ancient divisions of the region. This is the second state with the date removed from the title and the engraver imprint changed from Elisabeth Haussard to Groux.
