An interesting later issue of Delisle's map of the Low Countries showing hundreds of towns, villages, churches, rivers, marshes and roads. A beautifully engraved title cartouche in the upper left names Cassini and Snellius as contributors to this edition and is adorned with mythological and allegorical figures, including Neptune, Mercury, and putti fishing with a net. Engraved by Lièbaux le fils.
A nice impression with original outline color on watermarked paper with one tiny hole in the North Sea. Minor soiling in the blank margins. The sheet has deckled edges.
