Woodblock, bird's-eye plan of Amsterdam is portrayed on a sheet of German text. Remarkably detailed for its size, hundreds of individual buildings and houses are rendered. Dozens of tall ships ply the harbor and the Amstel River, which bisects the city. A coat of arms decorates the plan. There is German text also on the verso.
