A strongly engraved and early map of the area around Liege, engraved by Van Doetechum for Jodocus Hondius' re-issue of the Mercator Atlas. A large strapwork title piece and scale box dominate the upper part of the map which is in strong original colour. Expert restoration to soft and weak paper however this is, with fine bright colour and no loss of detail, a very attractive example.
