SCANDINAVIA OR SCANDIA COMPREHENDING THE THREE KINGDOMS OF DENMARK NORWAY AND SWEDEN
Afinely engraved and uncommon map of Scandinavia with Faro Islands and parts of Iceland and Scotland.
Depicting all of Scandinavia as it was at the end of the late 17th century. Here Sweden encompasses all of its present territory as well as all of Finland. Wonderfully crude, the contours of the regional are immediately recognizable, but more than a bit exagerrated. Notes major towns and cities, and shows the regional boundaries.
Very good condition.
