First printing of the first edition of this much-sought topography of Upper Austria in a well-preserved, complete copy. All engravings in their original, unnumbered state, showing superior contrast. While Vischer's topography of Lower Austria arranged several engravings on each leaf, this present volume shows each view of the Upper Austrian castles, towns, and monasteries on a separate oblong plate (including Kremsmünster, Eferding, Engelszell, Enns, St. Florian, Linz, Gmunden, Freistadt, Mondsee, Mauthausen, Schlägel, Steyr, Traun, and Wels).

Binding rubbed and bumped at extremeties; slight damage to upper spine-end. Some brownstaining throughout due to paper; small tear to edge of final view (Zellhofen; remargined).
