Description

Fine original antique map of the Swabian region of southern Germany, published in Amsterdam by the Visscher family at the end of the 17th century. The extremely attractive map shows the German region around the French and Swiss border in extensive detail, with cities, towns, and more all shown. 

The legend in the lower left of the map shows just how expansive the information provided is. Not only are major cities listed, but also are all the different types of cities differentiated (imperial free cities, capitals, etc.), universities are shown, bishoprics and venerated sites denoted, and much more. The map also includes a very decorative title cartouche and scale bar.

A number of important cities are shown on the map, including Stuttgart, Heilbronn, Basel, and Strasburg. Roads are shown. In all, a detailed and attractive map.
