Coat of Arms of Rotterdam (detail)

The splendid map with richest scenes

both in the bird’s-eye view as in particular, too, in the panoramic view

with almost all popular types of ships ,
among which twodekkers , yachts , flutes and tjalks and a raft .

Of special attraction in the bird’s-eye view
the numerous caulkers on the canals and
the great number of new constructions in the shipyards
and for fitting out on the quayage .

In the broad base of the cartouche the instructive legend, Neptune with fishing-net, Athene with Hermes’ stick and fruit, a fishwife with shield and a snail-shell as helmet, Pan and two negroes clearing out a large horn of plenty.

The detail views – with rich scenery throughout – showing City Hall – Laurence, French + Prince Church – Stock Exchange – The Market – The Fish Market – De Doelen – Schielandt Manor – Admirality – New + Old Court .

2 titles in red-brown. – Original mounting on Van Gelder Zonen laid paper. – Isolated minor scratches on the boards, only a longer one in the lower half of the front board a little less unobtrusive, the cover of the back had been cracked below from otherwise practically imperceptible pushing. Two binding-conditioned little fold tears in the bird’s-eye view backed acid-freely, otherwise absolutely fresh. And thus

gorgeously suited for a roomfilling-uniform ,

facsimile-highquality , though economic-riskless wall design .

Quite independent of this by the way for the maritime or locally interested eye something very beautiful to look at. In adequate binding.
