Southwest Zeeland (Walcheren) - Northern Flanders, by Willem den Dooven. 1617

Separate publication. Only two copies recorded: Nat. Archief Den Haag; Zeeuws Archief Middelburg.

Very interesting and important sea chart, of great importance for use at the very dangerous waters of the Westerschelde and surroundings. Willem Blaeu's map of this region, published in the Zeespieghel, was based on this map (Vlam).
