Splendid small map depicting today's province of North Holland. Decorated with strapwork title cartouche and distance scale and surrounded by an intricate strapwork frame. Latin text on verso.
Spectacular, early impression with beautiful hand coloring. One small rust ring in blank ocean that rather looks like it's part of the map, else fine.
