Antique map of Holland in the west of the Netherlands by N. Visscher. In the center Amsterdam, at the bottom left an inset map of the West Frisian islands Texel, Vlieland and Terschelling. In the IJsselmeer and Atlantic many sailing ships, a compass rose and mermaids with the coat of arms of the county of Holland.
The map first appeared in 1652 by Claes Jansz. Visscher. It was very popular and was copied by the cartographers P. Schenk, F. de Wit, C. Allard and J. Danckerts and published until the late 18th century. The map is based on the wall map of Balthasar Florisz of 1651. This copy corresponds to the fourth state of 1677.
