A detailed map of the central Dutch region of Overijssel focused on Ommen. It is filled with meticulous depictions of roads, landmarks and cities. The decorative cartouche in the lower left shows a fisherman (the typical symbol of the Visscher family) holding the coat of arms of the region. In the sea are two small boats and a compass rose.
Lovely original color that has been partially refreshed, light soiling, a professionally repaired centerfold separation at bottom, and faint damp stains that enter 1" into map at right and left.
