  • From one of the finest Dutch marine atlases of the era comes this chart of the Baltic and the Gulf of Finland. It covers the coastlines of northeastern Europe, including those of present day Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. 

    Koeman considers Pieter Goos’ 'Zee-Atlas' a beautiful work, reflecting "a high professional standard" which appealed to contemporary bibliophiles. It was always intended for "gentlemen and merchants" as well as "sailors and pilots". Selling well, it ran into several editions.
