A finely engraved and detailed map of today's Netherlands including interesting inset maps detailing the Dutch Empire around the world, notably that area of North America around New York and South and Eastern Asia from India to Japan and Nova Hollandia - Australia. A large title cartouche is supported by mythical maritime characters, reflecting Dutch sea power and cherubs supporting the Dutch coat of arms. Minor repairs and reinforcement to marginal nicks and centrefold but overall a very acceptable and attractive example.
