This attractive map of Holland is centered on the area around Amsterdam, Leiden and Haarlem, extending as far south as 's-Gravenhage. The tiny street patterns of the major cities are shown along with good detail of the surrounding provinces. A compass rose orients north to the upper right, and numerous tiny ships sail the seas. The map is further adorned with a decorative title cartouche featuring putti and a coat of arms.
