A charming and uncommon miniature map of the Danish island of Zeelandia with Copenhagen prominent. The map is found published in various editions of Honter's "Rudimentorum Cosmographicorum". Considering the map's small size the block is crammed with detail showing numerous towns in profile, with a number of placenames and numerous small ships illustrated in the surrounding seas.
