Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash. The map shows in its centre the archbishopric of Hildesheim. The map extends from the Northern Hannover and Braunschweig towards Einbeck in the Southern Hundsrück. A highly decorative and detailed map of this region with many place names, castles, monasteries, mountains, rivers and woods. At the bottom we find an inset plan of Hildesheim together with a panoramic view of the city of Hildesheim.
