Second(?) state of a beautifully engraved map of the coast of Holland, Flanders to Dieppe in Normandy and of south-west England. It was originally produced for the Atlas maritime, published in 1693/1694 for the King of England and Stadtholder of the Netherlands William III, which consisted of nine large charts, considered "the most spectacular type of maritime cartography ever produced in 17th century Amsterdam" (Koeman). It was designed, after English originals, and etched by the famous Dutch artist Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), who was at the time in the service of king William III. Especially the views and cartouches show De Hooghe's great skill.
The first state was published by Pierre Mortier and includes the year of publication "1693". The firm Covens & Mortier was established in 1721.
Some faint foxing, a few wormholes restored in the centre fold, and a small clean tear in another fold, otherwise still in very good condition.
Koeman, M.Mor. 5, map 1; not in Landwehr, Romeyn de Hooghe the etcher.
