We are looking here at the border region between France and Germany, more precisely between Elsace and the State of Baden Wurttemberg. In the upper left corner of this map we have a stretch of the River Rhine, with Fort-Louis, actually the only piece of France (Elsace). The larger rest of the map shows a very detailed area of Bade in Germany in the War of Spanish Succession. Vertical on the right we see the Western part of a section of the Black Forest. In the center of this map we see Stollhofen with the fortifications, built by Ludwig Wilhelm Ist of Baden. The situation in the year 1703.
This map was issued without a centerfold. A former owner, however, has folded it for easier keeping. There is at the bottom ca faint crease.A few parallel creases on centerfold.
