The second state of printing of this map, without Vissher's address. This map is considered one of the finest map engravings of the 17th century (Van de Heijden) and it celebrates the Twelve Years' Truce (1609-1621) between Spain and the Netherlands. There are many references and symbols of the peace in the map - as such, it is one of the earliest propaganda maps. The theme of the low countries (Belgium and the Netherlands today) as a lion appears on several maps of the period and this sitting lion is considered one of the finest examples. The date is estimated, but sometime between 1611 and 1621.
