Primum ut huius ¦ fluminis longitudinem ostendamus, siquidem præter anubium et Volgam (cuius tantum fontes in Europa sunt idioque non Europæ sed ¦ Asiæ fluvius esse videtur ) longiorem ac majorem Europa non habet. Alterum ut antiquos M. D. Lithuaniæ terminos Vitoldi M.

The map was originally issued as the eastern part of Blaeu's 6-sheet wall map of Lithuania. The map shows the course of the Dnieper River from Cherkasy to the estuary on the Black Sea. The map is in strip style with two vertical maps following the course of the river, each decorated with cartouches and compass roses and including numerous lengthy notations describing the cataracts, cities, salt mines, fortresses, and the historical traditions of the Kozaks. Putti flank a large cartouche at bottom. For more informations please klick the below link. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
