Copper engraving, 41.5 x 25.5 cm, original hand colour, blank verso. Title left blank so that a separately printed label in the correct language for the edition could be pasted down. The first volume features plans and views of the towns of the Northern provinces, the ‘Free Netherlands’, and their coats of arms are featured here; the towns of the Spanish provinces form volume two.
