An attractive map centered on Utrecht and extending to Amsterdam and Amersfoort. It is filled with well-engraved detail, including roads, dikes and fortified cities depicted as miniature plans. A compass rose orients north to the bottom right of the map. The Utrecht Hill Ridge (here labeled as Amers Foorder Berch) features prominently east of the city of Utrecht, and the Rhine flows along the top left corner of the map. The decorative title cartouche features the Utrecht coat of arms held by putti, a satyr, and beehives.
