This magnificent map covers all of Denmark, the northern tip of Germany, and the southern tip of Sweden. The land is fully engraved with mountains, forests, and cities. The title cartouche is quite elaborate with a host of livestock and the traditional woodwose standing guard over the coat of arms in the center.
Contemporary color in the map with later color in the cartouche on watermarked paper. There is a short, archivally repaired centerfold separation and minor dampstains in the bottom blank margin.
