DeIisle's attractive map of the Netherlands shows hundreds of towns, villages, churches, rivers, marshes and roads. A large uncolored title cartouche in the upper right names Cassini and Snellius as contributors to this edition, and is intricately adorned with mythological and allegorical figures. Published by Covens & Mortier. Dutch title is above the top border: Belgium Foederatum, ad usum Serenissimi Burgundiae Ducis.
A nice impression with original outline color on a sheet with some minor toning on the centerfold and some small, scattered stains. Still presents quite well.
