This miniature map shows the Diocese of Salzburg presented on the sheet within a scroll framework copied from Ortelius' map of the region. A unique compass rose orients the map with west at top. French text on verso.

The map was first published by Cornelius Claesz and printed by Barent Langenes in the 1598 edition of the popular Map-treasury. For the 1599 edition, graduation lines and latitude numerals were added to one side of the border on most of the maps, which were again used for multiple editions through 1650. This is the second state with the added graduation lines from a French edition, printed by Albert Hendricks.

A nice impression with light toning and a couple of damp stains confined to the blank margins.
