Political boundaries, cities, imperial roads, and the extensive river system are well defined, based on the Peutinger Table. Adorned with a decorative cartouche featuring a pair of cherubs. Dated 1659 but published in 1667.

References: Pastoureau, SANSON VI [63].

A crisp impression with contemporary outline color in the map and later color in the cartouche on a bright sheet with a large coat of arms watermark. There is a bit of offsetting at right and some minor extraneous creasing along the centerfold.
