A very attractive example of this scarce and detailed map of central eastern Sweden. Prepared for the "Atlas Maior" the map exemplifies the fine qualities of the Blaeu's work with elegantly engraved coats of arms and dedication panel, clear engraving and fine original hand-colour. Very minor centrefold weakness but otherwise a fine example.
