This small map of the Dutch Provinces of Overijssel and Drenthe is based on Blaeu's map of nearly the same title. It provides a graphic view of the vast regions of marshy lands in the region. Tiny coats of arms, the royal arms and a title cartouche adorn the map.


Condition: B+

The impression is a bit uneven and the map is printed on thin paper, as was common with German maps of this period.

Estimate: $160 - $200
