Copper engraving, 18.5 x 27 cm, original hand colour, margins a little dusty, blank verso. The cartouche is dominated by maritime imagery, including dolphins, tridents, nets and anchors. The legend on the right lists counties and regions of the Netherlands identified with abbreviations on the map. Schreiber’s pocket ‘Atlas Selectus’ may have been engraved as early as 1730 and reissued circa 1749-1750.
