This very rare map of the Northern Coast of Poland with Gdansk, appeared in the rare English edition of Willem Blaeu's 'Het Licht der Zeevaert', an atlas of sea charts first published in 1608. 'Het Licht was an early example of a lifetime's expertise in maritime navigation, which would eventually lead to his appointment as Hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company around 1633.

Blaeu's aim with 'Het Licht' was to win over seafarers, who largely disliked printed manuals. They felt that printed chart books could not be updated with personal observations as easily as the traditional manuscript rutters, and were not as attuned to the concerns of sailors. To counter this, Blaeu introduced innovative new chart symbols for beacons, buoys and shoals to make navigating safer, and made sure that each successive edition of 'Het Licht' carried the most up-to-date information. The maps themselves were engraved to the highest quality, possibly by Joshua van den Ende, to emphasize their clarity and ease of use.
