Handsome map of the region surrounding the city of Namur based on the once secret map of Jacques Surhon (1555). The bold decorations include a title cartouche featuring a coat of arms and four putti, an unusual compass with a costumed surveyor, and a large scale of miles cartouche. A sharp example which shows well.
Fine impression and original color. Light damp stain at top. Repaired small hole in top blank margin. One tiny area of surface paper loss below Dinant, else fine.
