A success story

This map was very successful and published from 1570 to after 1612.

The map was continuously altered, since the waterfront changed rapidly. Ortelius published 9 states of Zeeland. This map is the 8th state of the map, published between 1606 and 1612. Changes in the 8th state included the insertion of four nameplaces in Zeeuws Vlaanderen: S. Philippe, Fort S. Jorge, Hasegat and Ysendyck.
