Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash. With a great figure title-cartouche with a coat-of-arms and a cartouche with an inset map behind the portrait of Frederic III. A map of the duchy of Prussia with the city of Kaliningrad (Königsberg). An early map of the kingdom of Prussia published by Johann Baptist Homann, dated 18th of January 1701 (the date of the coronation of Frederik I). Illustrated at the top with a monumental allegoric title cartouche with his portrait and an inset map of Prussia surrounded by puttos and coats of arms. Frederick I (German: Friedrich I) (11 July 1657 – 25 February 1713), of the Hohenzollern dynasty, was (as Frederick III) Elector of Brandenburg (1688–1713) and Duke of Prussia in personal union (Brandenburg-Prussia). The latter function he upgraded to royalty, becoming the first King in Prussia (1701–1713). From 1707 he was in personal union the sovereign prince of the Principality of Neuchâtel (German: Fürstentum Neuenburg). He was also the paternal grandfather of Frederick the Great. (Wikipedia)
