This bird's-eye plan is reduced from Braun & Hogenberg's important plan of the city. It provides an excellent view of the citadel, city, docks and fortifications. A great many ships are shown in the Schelde and the city is surrounded by rich farmland. The chart is embellished with cartouches, two coats of arms and four costumed figures standing in the foreground.
Bit of light soil in margins.
