This handsome map roughly corresponds to the modern Austrian state of Styria. The map is centered on Graz, with a focus on the cities along the Drava River, now one of the most popular cycle paths in Europe. It extends east to Furstenfeld and west to Volkermarkt. There is good detail of rivers, mountains, and forested areas, and large cities are illustrated with miniature castles. The map is adorned with two cartouches featuring putti. French text on verso, published between 1652-58.
