Fine old color example of Louis Renard's sea chart of the North Sea, first issued by Frederick De Wit in 1675

The chart extends from Norway, Denmark and the German and Dutch Coastlines in the east to Ireland, Scotland and the Faroe Islands. Cherubs hold aloft the coats of arms of Norway, England, Scotland and Ireland, with sailing ships, compass roses and two elaborate cartouches, likely engraved by Romeyn De Hooghe.

A fine old color example, with wide clean margins.
