(Namur, Belgium- Netherlands- Belgie)
Issued Amsterdam, 1652 by Jansson for Guicciardini.
Excellent mid-17th century engraved miniature city plan. A marvel of engraving, near microscopic level of detail, small key at lower right contains list of 8 specific important locations.
A superior example. Dark rich impression from the plate, the contrast between darks and lights well nuanced. Splendid capturing of the city within the early fortified walls.
Overall the map is fresh, clean, well preserved and nicely printed.
Original fold line as issued.
