This is a very scarce and detailed map of Gelderland, the central Dutch province. It covers from the Ijsselmeer (de Zuider Zee) to Roermond. The figurative cartouche glorifies both the bounty and the military prowess of the region.
Nice impression and original color. There are a couple of stains and some tears entering the map (some with old paper repairs on verso). The left side margin is narrow (1/8") as issued and there is a large worm hole in the border near the cartouche with an old paper repair on verso.
