Title: “Magni Ducatus Lithuaniae et Regionum Adiacentium exacta Descriptio . . . D.Nicolai Christopheri Radziwil . . .”
Rare map of Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Prussia, Belarus, Ukraine and Russia which first appeared in the 1662 edition of Blaeu’s Atlas Maior. This is Blaeu’s second map based upon Radizwill’s early map. The present edition is oriented with west at the top. Because the map appeared only in the very late editions of Blaeu’s Atlas Maior, it is very rare on the market.
