Detailed map of part of the country between the rivers Rhine and Meuse showing the important canal between Rheinberg in Germany and Venlo. It also presents a fine view of the roads and fortifications in the region. The map is decorated with a tribe of warring putti around the title cartouche. 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. This little map is from Colom's only land atlas.
Map is fine. Margins have some light stains, one short tear and two clipped corners.
