An attractive example of this early map of all Scandinavia. Based on the map by Andreus Bureaus, Mattheus Merian engraved a reduced size version which appeared in "Archontologia Cosmica ..." in 1638. This is a re-engraved version of that map, lacking Merian's signature, but copying the detail and decoration closely. Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Baltic States are well defined and there is a fine title cartouche at top left. Trimmed close with added protective margins but a decorative example.
