This scarce map depicts Utrecht and parts of Friesland and Brabant with their coasts. The details include canals, roads, polders, marshes, and villages with major cities marked in red. Compass roses orient north to the right and a variety of sailing vessels fill the seas. Athena graces the strapwork title cartouche, which is balanced by the coat of arms of Holland. Engraved by Gerard Coeck. Spanish text on verso, published between 1653-66.

References: Van der Krogt (Vol. I) #3400:1C.1.

Condition: A

A nice example with marginal soiling and professionally repaired centerfold separations that just enter the map border at top and bottom.
