Description :A beautiful, rare, decorative “Carte a Figures” map of Holstein, Germany by Johannes Visscher of Amsterdam.
It was engraved by Abraham Goos, and shows the former Duchy of Holstein, and large parts of the Duchy of Schleswig, almost what is today known as Schleswig-Holstein.
Top centre cartouche, flanked by 2 small views of Schleswig and Flensburg, as well (in the corners) 2 inserts of Dagebüll and Stapelholm.

Below the cartographic representation is a bar with 9 small views and city plans with 3 traditional figures in regional dress and two additional city plans on each side.
There are a total 25 separate inserts making up the wonderful map.
First published in 1628, this is the second edition, dated 1630.

Claes Janszoon Visscher (1587–1652) was a Dutch 'Golden Age' draughtsman, engraver, mapmaker and publisher.
He learned the art of etching and printing from his father, and helped grow the family printing and map-making business to one of the largest in his time. ¤
Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica VI (Dutch folio-sized single sheet maps with decorative borders) p 220-22.
Condition : In good condition with several repairs on the right and left borders including the lower right border and lower right corner (1 ½” x 1”) in facsimile.
The map has been neatly re-margined on the right and left sides. A 2 ½” split on the upper centrefold has also been repaired.
Note that there are no repairs on the interior map area within the inner border. The map has been flattened out and supported at the folds with Japan paper.
Overall a wonderful rare map in good condition with repairs difficult to differentiate.
