This elegantly engraved map centers on Bavaria and extends to include nearby Imperial States such as Saxony, Salzburg, and Tyrol. In addition to political divisions, numerous towns and cities are located including Munich, Nuremberg, Ingolstadt, and Linz. There is excellent topographical detail. Brenner Pass is depicted in the southwest corner of the map. There are two ornate cartouches at top: one at left enclosing five distance cartouches, and one at right for the title.
