Visscher and Iberian Peninsula

First state: The map shows the geographical image introduced by Hessel Gerritsz’s 1612 wall map of Spain, based on information provided by the Coimbra University professor Don Andreae d’Almada. The map is framed on 4 sides by town views, costumed figures and coats of arms. In the side borders are costumed figures representing the different social classes. The map was according to prof. Schilder probably engraved by Abraham Goos; the borders by an unknown engraver from the Visscher work shop.

Cities at the top: Madrid, Lixbona, Valladolid.

Cities at the bottom: Granada, Toledo, Barcelona and Burgos. Bottom center: Monast. S. Laurent.

The four corners show: Pons Segovia, Tores Herculis,  S. Adriani M and Algibe.
