Handsome map centered on Syaelland with the topography, cities and towns meticulously engraved. The map is extravagantly adorned with fifteen different ships and boats, a variety of sea monsters, heralds, three cartouches, each flanked by figures, and a distance scale held by a surveyor. A very fine example of the mapmaker's art. Dutch text on verso.
Lovely original color. Toned with a couple of spots in map and minor creasing at centerfold. Couple of short tears in blank margins.
