Notes

First and only edition of this splendid cadastral atlas. In 1695, the Landen van Voorne’ commissioned the surveyor Heyman van Dijck to map the territory of Voorne (South Holland). Romeyn de Hooghe was requested to decorate the maps, but would eventually only execute the title-page, which is a typical example of his rich allegorical imagery; decorated with the coats-of-arms of the administrators of Voorne, with the arms of the Opperdijkgraaf’, Jacob Frederik Baron van Beyeren van Schagen, prominently placed in the centre. Jan and Caspar Luyken adorned the highly detailed maps with the coat-of-arms of the region depicted, often against the background of a rustic scene.
