This striking plan of Amsterdam includes a key that lists 51 places of note in the city, among them Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Kerk, several gates into the city, and various markets. Tiny depictions of windmills surround the city. A compass rose orients north to the bottom right of the sheet. The title cartouche in the top right corner shows a port scene featuring three sailing ships and a man smoking a pipe.
A dark impression.
