Fine little map of Holland and Belgium, based on Hondius' map of the Low Countries, has north oriented to the right by a nice compass rose. The top of the map is filled with armorial shields for the various cities. The title cartouche is adorned with strings of fish and stylized animals.
A nice impression on a clean sheet with some minor paper weakness in the left side of the map, and one tiny rust spot in the top of the map.
