This appears to be a title sheet to a multiple sheet map of Silesie - now a part of Poland. The folio sheet is almost completely taken up with a beautifully engraved title cartouche surrounded by a landscape, several figures, weaponry and incorporating the distance scale. In the lower left corner is a detailed map of the region around Wartenberg and Olesno. The whole is enclosed in a full border. A very decorative sheet.
