Rare and well-detailed map of the southern Hessen region of Germany, displaying its political divisions at the end of the 1600s along with a plethora of toponyms and geographical information.
The map shows important cities including Frankfurt, Mainz, Koblenz, Siegen, and Giessen. Forests, rivers, mountains, and other features are shown. These important cities are colored in red and shown with a representation of their city walls. Smaller cities are represented using a symbol showing their ecclesiastical stature.
This map was published at the end of the 17th century by Gerard and Leonard Valk in Amsterdam.
Original hand-color in outline. Very faint offsetting and soiling.
