Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. Ornated in the upper right corner with an allegoric title cartouche, the Bavarian lion and a coat of arms. The map shows the 'Upper Palatinates' of Bavaria divided up into its single political circles. In the south we find Regensburg at the Northeast point of the Danube, in the north the map extends towards the 'Fichtelgebirge' . The map itself is very accurate and provides information on small place names, villages, monasteries, woods, lakes, rivers, etc.
