This very detailed map of Zeeland includes impressive decorative features, with over two dozen sailing ships, two compass roses, a small distance scale cartouche with a mermaid, and a large title cartouche complete with putti and hippocampi surrounding the coat of arms of Zeeland. The information provided is equally impressive with canals, roads, polders, marshes, fortified cities, windmills and sandbars depicted.
Superb impression and original color with a short centerfold separation on bottom, far from map image.
