This is a very beautiful map due to the highly decorative title cartouche filling the Baltic Sea. The map covers the northern portion of Poland (Gdansk south to Torun) and the Baltic coast, Konigsburg (Kaliningrad) into Lithuania. It is highly detailed throughout with roads, cities, and towns. The title cartouche features a god and goddess of war and two putti flanking the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Prussia.
