Fine regional map of Germany centered on Munster. The map covers from Hamburg to part of Hesse on the right, and from Frisland to Luttich and Maastricht on the left. Other notable cities featured include Aachen, Essen, Koln (Cologne), Dusseldorf, and Bremen. There is great detail of towns, roads, and rivers. The day’s political boundaries are color-coded. The lovely title cartouche features several charming putti.
