This finely engraved map covers eastern Bohemia from Prague east to Glatz. The region is divided into circolos (okres). A key identifies cities (both walled and without walls), castles, villages, postal stops, and hot and cold baths. At bottom right there is a decorative title cartouche depicting a rural scene. Drawn by G. Zuliani and engraved by G. Pitteri.
