 The map first appeared in Blaeu's Appendix in 1630, but the present example is a revised state, per Keuning (Imago Mundi XIV, pp 74-89). Striking early impression, in full color. A highly detailed map of the rgion, extending south to Kempen and north to Santen. From the 1634 edition of Blaeu's Atlas Novus, the first edition of this work.
