Koeman-v.d.K., map 2930:1.1. Single printed map: “Not known in an atlas”. Van der Krogt knows only one loose copy in the UB Amsterdam! The map shows the territory of the former duchy of Legnica with several decorative cartouches, i.a. a dedication-cartouche to Georg Rudolf of the Piast dynasty, who was Duke of Legnica from 1602 to 1653. – Fine dark impression with full plate tone, which is an indicator of an early state. Around the impression ample original margin. An extremely rare map in excellent condition!
