Copper engraving, hand colored in outline when published. This is the very large and detailed map of the duchy of Pommerania by the famous French cartographer Nicolaus Sanson. It shows Pommerania newly divided up into its primary principalities, with the neighboring duchy of Prussia and parts of the kingdom of Poland. The map is printed from two large plates and was for the first time published with Nicolaus Sanson in Paris 1696. The map provides very detailed information on geographical place names, rivers, mountains and political borders. Nicolaus Sanson Hubert Jaillot's map of Pommerania can be treated as a masterpiece of the French baroque cartography in the 17th century. It took Nicolaus Sanson and Hubert Jaillot a period of about fifteen years to complete this enormous work (c. 1681-96). The atlas was dedicated to Ludwig XIV.
