Condition Rating

Rare edition of Visscher's map of the XVII Provinces. The re-edition of this map, dated 1630, 1650 and 165. The 1630 edition served as a general survey of the Seventeen Provinces in Visscher's edition of the Germania Inferior by Pieter van den Keere (Koeman, A.N. Vis 1A).

The fisherman sitting upon the cartouche in the upper left-hand corner is a symbol for the publisher's name ('visscher' = fisherman). In the upper edge of this cartouche we find a second imprint: 'bij C.I.Visscher in de Kalverstraet tot Amsterdam ind.'. This cartouche has a table with the number of cities and villages in each province, a traditional addition to a map of the XVII Provinces at the time. The title-cartouche is surrounded by the coats of arms of the provinces.
Reference: Heijden, Eenheid op papier, E71.
