Charming early 18th century original engraved map.
By one of the most well known men working in Germany in the map & print trade in this era. Delightful level of abstraction, the outlines of the very early fortified walls still very much present, numerous sailing ships in the harbor/ coastline, topography shown, text below the birds-eye prospect view.
