    Description

    [Map]. Peter Schenk. "Friderico Augusto vere Augusto. Polon. Lithuan. Borus. Pomer. Regi. Duci. Principi. Saxon. Utr. Duci. S. Imp. Elect. Haec. Imperii. Sui. Regna." [1711]. Measuring 22" x 19.125", this engraved, hand colored map shows Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, part of Russia, and the other Baltic territories. There is a large cartouche in the upper left corner picturing Frederick Augustus, the Elector of Saxony, King of Poland, and Grand Duke of Lithuania. Below the portrait are the arms of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. On the right side of the cartouche is a clerical figure, perhaps Nicolaus Copernicus, viewing the heavens with an astrolabe. There is an inset map in the upper right corner showing the Electorate of Saxony. The map is mounted on board and closely trimmed. It is separated at the center line and has general toning along the edges.
