Fine, original antique two-sheet map of the region around Kassel and Gottingen, in the central German region of Hessen, just to the north of Frankfurt. This map was published in Paris by Jean de Beaurain in the mid-18th century.

The map shows the region in fine detail, with many cities, towns, roads, rivers, and other geographical features shown. Military positions, from France's recent 1759 foray into the region, are also shown but uncolored. Positions are shown throughout, including just north of Giessen and to the west of Neustadt.

Below the map, Beaurain relays the manuscript sources from which he developed the map. Jean de Beaurain was a French Geographer and Royal Geographer to King Louis XV.
