Handsome map centered on Syaelland with the topography, cities and towns meticulously engraved. The map is extravagantly adorned with fifteen different ships and boats, a variety of sea monsters, heralds, three cartouches, each flanked by figures, and a distance scale held by a surveyor. It is a very fine example of the mapmaker's art.
Sharp impression with a few tiny rust spots, still very good.
