Notes

Rare pictorial bird’s-eye view of the Swedish attack on Danzig in 1628, published by the little known Dutch publisher Jacob Marcus. His only other foray into map” publishing was an edition of Famiano Strado’s De Bello Belgico, 1647, which included an engraved frontispiece map, a Leo Belgicus’ — an allegorical map of the Netherlands depicted in the form of a lion.
