One of the oldest maps of the duchy of Brabant

Dating 1540, so still a woodcut and without any boundaries, it covers a larger region up to River Rhine from Rinamgn (remember WW II bridge!) to Arnum, further due west to Dordrecht. The inland river system is prominently present. The islands of Zeeland are naively portraited.

The verso contains a table with Latin names of certain locations which existed in Roman times.
