Impressive and very rare plan of Gent by Covens & Mortier. This city plan seems to be engraved by F. De Bakker and published in Amsterdam after 1720. The plan is a close copy to the plan issued by Fricx in 1711. The main buildings have been represented individually. Several changes to the Fricx plan occurs. The extensive legend has 82 entries. We only could locate a handful copies of this plan in libraries.
