Title : 't Hooge Heemraedschap van Delflant..
Map maker : CRUQUIUS, N. J..
Date : Delft, 1712.
Size : 20.3 x 23.1 inches. / 51.5 x 58.8 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Beautifully engraved map, a reduced from of the wall map, of 't Hooge Heemraedschap van Delfland prepared by Nicolaas and Jacob Kruikius. Decorated with the Delfland coat of arms supported by 2 allegorical figures in its centre: 10 large coats of arms of the water district officials down the left and right sides, an elaborate compass rose (north above right): and pastoral scenes.
It shows every city, town and village.
The compass rose is remarkable, with a globe at its centre showing Africa, Europe and parts of Asia and South America: with gods representing the sun, moon and planets in the other seven: and a celestial map with figures representing signs of the zodiac between the points.
The Delfland dike and water authorities commissioned the surveyors Nicolaas (1678-1754) and Jacob Kruikius (1684-1706) to produce the present map in 1701, and they devoted more than a decade to the task. By the mid-century only one of the original dike and water authorities remained in office. The main map was not revised, but the overview map was replaced with a newly drawn and engraved one, ordered in 1750.
Postma, Kruikius' Kaart van Delfland 1712.
Condition : Margins cut close. A good and dark impression. Title and parts of coats of arms heightened with gold.
