Stiking full color example of Visscher's scarce map of Poland, Lithuania and parts of Prussia and Russia, extending to the Black Sea. An usual Visscher map, which is not based upon early Dutch maps, but instead is drawn from Nicholaus Sanson's work. The unusual cartouche includes two windheads, a cheetah's head and two sets of bows and arrows, and is presented in elegant colors and an engraving style which is distinct from most works by Visscher. The map properly credits Sanson in the scale of miles, one of the few Visscher maps to follow Sanson's work. Attractive early color and wide clean margins. An excellent example of this scarce map.
