Special map of the county of Holland with Utrecht and parts of the Netherlands, published by Nicolaas Visscher(II) in Amsterdam around 1690.
The map is printed from two copper plates with different dimensions. Because the size of the mounted map is very large, it was folded on the top and right side to fit into an atlas.
In the upper left of the North Sea is a beautiful title cartouche surrounded by allegorical figures and the coat of arms of Holland. In the title cartouche is the Latin title and the publisher impressum “HOLLANDIÆ COMITATUS IN EJUSDEM SUBJACENTES DITIONES; una cum TOTO ULTRAJECTINO DOMINIO nec non MAXIMIS PARTIBUS GELDRIÆ DUCATUS FRISIÆ COMITATUS aliarumque VICINARUM PROVINCIARUM FOEDERATUM exactissimè delineates Per NICOLAUM VISSCHER Amst: Bat: Cum Privil: Ordin: General: Belgii Foederati. G. Gouwen schulp.”.
At the top of the map are two scale sticks on the left and a Dutch title and publisher impressum on the top centre “LANDKAART VERTONENDE HET GRAAFSCHAP HOLLAND, SEER DIENSTIG OM TE REYSEN NA EN VAN SYNE NABURIGE PROVINCIEN, F, ’t Amsteldam door NICOLAUS VISSCHER met Privilegie”. (Ref.: Blonk - Van der Wijst "Hollandia Comitatus" P.342-334 / map no. 70)
