This is a very beautiful map due to the highly decorative title cartouche filling the Baltic Sea. It covers the northern portion of Poland (Gdansk south to Torun) and the Baltic coast, Konigsburg (Kaliningrad) and into Lithuania. It is highly detailed throughout with roads, cities and towns. The title cartouche features a portrait of Frederick III, King of the Prussian dynasty, surrounded by allegorical figures.


Condition: B

There is moderate toning and soiling along the centerfold, and several separations along the centerfold have also been repaired. The bottom margin has been extended to accommodate framing.
