A fine decorative map of the kingdom of Scandinavia, centered on Finland, but including Sweden, and portions of Norway, western Russia, Estonia and Latvia.
The map was originally issued by Frederick de Wit but was then re-issued by Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam. There is a lot of good map detail with topography, towns, rivers, lakes etc. The decorative title cartouche in the lower right corner is surrounded by putti and coats of arms.
Mortier's grandparents left France in 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in either 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam, but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685. It is estimated that at about this time he must have entered into the book trade.
Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books.
He established himself in atlases and introduced the modern French maps by Sanson's and Jaillot's in a larger format than the classical Dutch maps.
This map has been beautifully coloured.
