Very large, impressive and detailed manuscript map of the Danube river between Sigmaringen and Donauwörth. Drawn on vellum. The map was created around 1702 and shows the area between Sigmaringen and Riedlingen in the west and Donauwörth and Augsburg in the east. In the north with Geislingen and Nördlingen, in the south to Kempten, Kaufbeuren and Landsberg. Along the Danube Munderkingen, Ehingen, Ulm, Leipheim and Günzburg. Serveral numbered military positions are shown.
Our research showed that the Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg (General State Archive Karlsruhe) holds a manuscript map on vellum under the signature H-f No. 284, showing another section of the Danube. After visual comparison, it is most probably made by the same artist. On the map of the General State Archives Meichsner Lieut. is written in a corner, the same name is mentioned on the back of our map. The Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg could date their map to 1702.
