Nuernberg, [1716]. Hand coloured copper engraved map ca. 49x58 cm (19 ¼ x 23 in). Original centrefold. A very good map. "From Grosser Atlas. This map depicts the town of Stralsund in northern Germany as besieged by the Danish & Prussian armies on July 15, 1715. Meticulous troop placements surround the city under siege in one of the many attempts to take it by foreign invaders. An inset at the left also describes various ship operations approaching Peenemunde. Under the map lies an expansive view of Stralsund, framed on both sides by allegorical figures. The map was prepared by Daniel Heer" (Old World Auctions).
