An attractive small map of eastern Germany centered on Berlin that extends south to Wittenberg and Leipzig and north to Stargard and Brandenburg. While small in size, it is filled with details including towns, cities, fortified cities, roads, rivers, forests, and more. A panel at right lists political divisions which are keyed to the map. Decorated by a small compass rose and title cartouche flanked by two river gods.
