This beautifully engraved folio map focuses on the Kingdom of Sweden and extends to include Finland and parts of Estonia and Latvia. Dense details of towns, rivers, and the topography of the land fill the map. The architectural title and distance scale cartouche is surrounded by putti and the coats of arms of the region.


Condition: B+

A nice impression with a couple small separations along the centerfold and a small tear at center that have been repaired with archival materials on verso. There is a soft horizontal crease across the middle of the map, having been folded by a previous owner.
