Description

Decorative map of Northern Holland between Amsterdam and the island of Texel. This map was published at the end of the 17th-century in Amsterdam by the Visscher publishing family, one of the most important Dutch publishing families of the Golden Age of Dutch Cartography.

The map shows the region in question in fine detail, with numerous canals, roads, cities, and more denoted. The sub-symmetric layout of Amsterdam is shown crisscrossed by bodies of water and confined by its old walls.

The map is extremely decorative, possessing two large cartouches. The lower right cartouche shows pastoral scenes of the Netherlands, with milkmaids holding barrels of cheese and a shepherd. The upper left cartouche shows more regal scenes, with various coats of arms and well-built figures.
