*** Rare carte-à -figures, second state ***

Nova Germaniae Descriptio. - Janssonius J., 1630.

This map is framed on four sides by decorative borders. The top border contains portraits of Emperor Matthias with the seven Electors, all on horseback. Matthias is shown twice: as Emperor, and as King of Bohemia and Hungary.
The map image is framed by shields with coats of arms along both side borders and the bottom border showing the hierarchy of the Holy Roman empire in the form of Quarternions. Along the bottom border runs a strip with ten town views in oval frames. The depictions on Willem Jansz's 1609 map served as models for all these town views. The coats of arms along the side borders are flanked by costumed figures.
