Very rare and highly detailed map of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, based upon Blaeu’s famous four sheet map, sixth edition. It covers the region from Riga to Smolensk in the north, and from Cracow to Kiev in the south. The map provides a great amount of information and includes several historical notations and two vignettes illustrating important battles in the vicinity of Braclaw (Bratslav), and near Smolensk. It also includes a detailed inset map, in two strips, of the lower part of Dnieper River. It is embellished with a sailing ship, title cartouche and coat of arms.

The map comes from Petrus Schenk and Gerard Valk​ atlas “Nova totius Geographia…” published in Amsterdam, 1690.
