A charming miniature map roughly centered on the city of Luxembourg, with Trier just to the northeast. The map is filled with towns and the river system in the region, including the Moselle River. 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.

Condition: B+

Light toning and soiling.
