Rare map in its second state, copied first in 1556 by Jacobus Bossius and Michele Tramezini after the Brabant map of 1536 by Jacob van Deventer. He made a set of maps of the five provinces of the Northern Netherlands, of which no copies are known. The first editions were made in Antwerp 1556-1560, followed by the adaptions published by Tramezini, whose series in turn were later copied by Forlani.
