About this Item

Size: 540 x 450 mm. Fine condition Copper engraving. Original colour. Magnificent, finely detailed map of Scandinavia, also showing northern Holland, Germany and Poland, and Baltic Russia. Title cartouche at top left, dedicated to Gustavus Adolphus by "Nicolae Iohannide Piscatore", Visscher's latinized name. The title is surrounded by 30 coats of arms, with Swedish arms on a shield above. Six scales in simple secondary cartouche at lower right. This map is engraved by Abraham Goos, and is based on the earlier (1626) six-sheet map of Sweden by the Scandinavian cartographer Andre Bure.
