Notes

Joan Blaeu's attractive map of the county, combining all the fine points of Dutch cartography at the height of its influence. With eight coats of arms and a fine title cartouche, this sheet is finished with five well-engraved sailing ships dotting the sea. The map was first issued in 1645-62. This comes from the second issue, with latin text on the reverse, and is a fine dark impression.
