Map of Silesia] Mappa Geographica Exactissima, Continens Imperatoris Haereditarium Dominium Silesiam, nec non eiusdem Provincias interiores Ducatus, Comitatus, Baronatus etc. Cum Privilegio Ord. General. Holland et West-Frisiae.
Amsterdam 1700 - [Amsterdam], ca. 1700. Hand coloured copper engraved map ca. 49,5x58 cm (19 ½ x 22 ¾ in). Blank on verso, with a manuscript ink number "60" in the right upper corner (verso). Very mildly browned at the centrefold, with a small split on the bottom, upper margin trimmed close to the plate mark, otherwise a very good map. This attractive map shows Silesia at the end of the 17th century under Habsburg Rule. The 17th century saw Silesia lose large parts of its population due to the Thirty Years' War, diseases and emigration. "Petrus Schenck, or Pieter, or Peter Schenk the elder was a German engraver and cartographer active in Amsterdam and Leipzig" (Wikipedia).
