This detailed map illustrates Sweden, parts of Norway and Finland, and the Baltic states that were at the time under her control - Latvia and Estonia. Scores of towns and villages, rivers and lakes and islands are located and named. The large decorative title cartouche features the royal coat of arms, a trumpeting angel, putti and soldiers.
A nice impression on a bright sheet with full contemporary color in the map and later color in the cartouche. There are a few spots of soiling, a professionally repaired hole in the Baltic Sea, and light toning along the edges of the sheet.
