Nice example of Peter van der Keere's (Petrus Kaerius) map of the Low Countries in ancient times.

Scarce and superb map based on the cartography of Ortelius, from the Parergon. Graphically engraved to illustrate the forested land with a few cities and ancient place names taken from classical sources.

The map is elaborately adorned with three cartouches, a sailing ship, and an interesting scene showing 2 natives of the region.
