This small map of Nord Pas-de-Calais depicts even the tiniest villages. It is decorated with two pictorial cartouches, one including Hermes delivering a message to a warrior figure.
A dark impression with contemporary outline color. There are a couple short splits to the right of the centerfold that have been closed with old paper on verso and a centerfold separation at bottom.
