First state of this highly decorative map of the Province of Utrecht.

In the Zuiderzee a cartouche is located with a view of Utrecht (Traiectum). A shield with the coat of arms of the province of Utrecht is shown in the upper right. Below of it, two upright standing costumed figures (TRAIECTINI) are depicted. Along the bottom border are two rows of coat of arms. The left one shows the arms of the towns in the bishopric Utrecht (Utrecht, Amersfort, Rhenen, Wijk and Montfort), the right one the coats of arms of the most principal vasalls and allies of the bishopric Utrecht.

The map content is a reduction of the map of Utrecht by Cornelius Anthonisz. Hornhovius of 1599, now only known from a later edition by Clement de Jonghe. (Schilder)
