Very decorative map of Holland by Frederick de Wit. Oriented to the west, decorated with numerous ships and two compass roses. This is the edition by Covens and Mortier. With Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Delft, Leiden and Utrecht. To the top right the Dutch coat of arms surrounded by maritime figures.
Very good strong impression. Very good condition with old colour. Never framed before.
