Decorative and very detailed map of Belgium and Holland. The map shows the Netherlands and partial maps of the Dutch spheres of influence in North America and Southeast Asia. It comes with two city views of New Amsterdam (New York) and Batavia (Jakarta), a large figurative coat of arms cartouche, a mileage indicator and a small map of Limburg. This is the only Homann map to include a view of New York City.
