This masterful map depicting Eastern Prussia was based on earlier work by Olaf Hansson Svart (Örnehufvud), who had mapped much of the region, including maps detailing mining operations.

The map presented here, created by Jansonnius, is a highly detailed topographical view of the area. Oriented East, the map depicts cities, towns, fortifications and castles, ports, and all lakes, rivers and waterways. Danzig (Gdańsk in Polish) is the major city featured. Forested areas are shown in detail. The large, ornate title cartouche has an extension at the lower side which includes a distance legend.

Condition: Map is in A condition with some faint foxing that is confined to the margins. The print impression is very dark on heavy paper with no tears or holes.
