VISSCHER, Nicolas

Landraviatus Alsatiae Inferioris Novissima Tabula

Amsterdam, c.1690
465 x 565 mm., early wash colour, in good condition
An attractive map of Lower Alsatia displaying a region of both modern day France and Germany. The River Rhine dissects the map beginning at Philipsburg in the north and is centred on Strasbourg. It bears a beautifully engraved title cartouche, typical of the Dutch mastery of the day. The dating of maps by the Visscher family is difficult but bearing the privilege granted in 1677 we can estimate the date of issue at approximately 1690. An example of the second state with the addition of a reference grid. Koeman (1967-70) III pp. 150-84 no. 90*; Tooley (1999-2004).
