Our University’s collections have been recently enriched with a unique map of the Duchy of Pomerania from a turn of the XVIII century.
A map by an anonymous author, it shows the lands of the former Duchy of Pomerania after the division between Sweden and Brandenburg. In the lower part, a view of Wismar, where the tribunal (supreme court) for the German possessions of the Swedish crown was located. Technique: colored copper engraving. The map was purchased by SEC Szczecińska Energetyka Cieplna and donated to the University of Szczecin.
