Splendid example of a large format linen backed city plan of Amsterdam. Richly printed as issued, a superior clean fresh example. With the original green publishers cardboard slipcase which fits snugly. All separately issued linen-backed wall maps of this era are fairly rare survivals, more-so found so nice as this example.
Dissected into 24 panels, printed and mounted by publisher, original hand lettered title to box.
Map measures c. 38 1/4" W" x 22 1/4" H . Folio.
Slip case measures 7 3/4" H x 5 1/8" W.
Hameleers, Kaarten van Amsterdam 1538-1865, 104, 6th (and final) state. The extensive documentation of each state allows for absolutely certain dating, which is confirmed by being the only state which lacks a title cartouche at bottom center. Cement Molen so named along Nieuwe Vaart.
D'Ailly, Calalogus van Amsterdamsche Plattegronden, 313 (placing it chronologically in at c.1779-80 and noting the key at right goes to #299, which is "N.Z. Huis zittenhuis"). This is quite interesting when compared to the definitive state found above.
