This is a very scarce little map from Colom's only land atlas. It provides an excellent view of the region between Brugge, Sluis and the Westerschelde showing the fortifications, polders, canals, villages, marshes and coastline. Jacob Aertsz Colom was the founder of the Colom publishing company. He founded the Navigation School in Amsterdam, and published a number of fine sea charts, coasting pilots and this small atlas of Belgium and The Netherlands.
