Shop on Etsy


"A New Map of the Netherlands, also of that part of Germany Westward of the Rhine as Ceded to the French & Divided into their Several Departments From the Latest Authorities." Original hand-colored map engraved & published by John Cary, London: Nov. 28, 1804. Although titled the Netherlands, the map actually depicts modern Belgium & Luxembourg as Belgium had not become its own nation until the Belgian Revolution in 1830. The map is exceptionally detailed, showing fortified cities & prominent towns, major routes of travel, & physical & topographic features (including areas of forrest & the coastline along the North Sea). Local political borders are outlined in hand color, with full hand coloring of select regions & the North Sea. The map was printed on high-quality thick paper, which contains a visible water mark when held up to light. The original plate impression is clearly visible approximately 1" beyond the map's border. The map was bound into the atlas along its top edge & is unusual in that it never folded out & therefore does not contain any original creases. The original atlas was double folio in size, with its large flat maps therefore free of folds. Size: Approx. 18-1/8" tall x 20-1/4" wide (map print area, with the overall sheet size several inches larger in each direction) Condition: Very good, with bold original color & full perimeter margins as issued. There is some faint staining along the top paper edge as well as the bottom right corner; however, at both locations the staining remains within the perimeter margin & has no affect on the printed area of the map. A fine example of Cary's map of The Netherlands. All of our antique maps & prints are stored in protective plastic sleeves.
