Van Den Keere's atlas of the Low Countries is one of the landmark regional atlases of the early 17th Century, with the maps engraved by Van Den Keere, who would go one to do significant work for John Speed and a number of other map makers of the first part of the 17th Century. The map shows the area around Antwerp in exceptional detail, showcasing Van Den Keere's engraving skills.
