Superb map of the Prussian Empire, which is present day Poland, Lithuania and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad (here Konigsperg). Ortelius based the map on the work of Caspar Henneberger (1576), and this is the second version with the more elaborate title cartouche. Sharp impression and lovely color. Spanish text on verso.
