This pair of maps of regions in Belgium is boldly engraved in Coronelli's style and filled with towns, rivers, roads, and topography. This set includes:
A. Marchesato del Sacro Impero, e Signoria di Malines... This map shows the region around Antwerp (at right) and Brussels (at far left), with north oriented to the right. Also shown are the cities of Mechelen, Leuven, and Dendermonde.
B. Contado di Namur... This map is centered on Namur with north oriented to the right, extending to Huy, Dinant, and Charleroi.
Dark impressions with light toning along the centerfold. The map of Marchesato has a centerfold separation at top that has been closed on verso with archival tape, with loss of a tiny sliver of image.
