This is a nicely detailed map of the island of Rugen which is located in the Baltic Sea just off the coast of northeastern Germany. The map is filled with names of towns an elaborate compass rose sailing ships and a sea monster. The cartouche is topped by a crest with lions and features a distance scale along the bottom. The map is flanked with 30 coats-of-arms all of which are named. It is a beautiful example of Willem Blaeu's style of map making.
Condition: Map is in A condition with subtle yet beautiful coloring.
