This is a fine print reproduction of a handsome map depicting Denmark divided into four Dioceses: Borch, Wiborg, Arhusen, and Rypen. Towns rivers mountains and forested areas are graphically depicted. In the title cartouche two figures appear at bottom with hands bound behind their backs. One is missing its face the other is missing its head. This is a later state of Nicolas Sanson's map originally created in 1659.
