Alsace, in the far north-eastern corner of France, stands out from other French wine regions thanks to its strong Franco-Germanic influences. Alsace is the only French wine region to grow significant quantities of Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Both of these varieties are more commonly associated with German wines, and serve as a reminder of Alsace's history. Pinot Gris, a variety typically marginalized in other French regions as a blending component, is another of the region's specialties.

Detailed map centered on Strasbourg. Showing the river Rhine from Schafhausen till Philipsburg, including the towns of Colmar, Basle, etc. Upper left splendid uncoloured title cartouches.
The map is painted in strong colours. Maps published in Germany during the 18th century are usually in body colours, with uncoloured cartouches.
Johann Baptist Homann born in Kammlach (1663). He was engraver, map-seller and geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire (1715). He also was member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Science.
