GERMANY/LOW COUNTRIES -- "NEUE GEOGRAPHISCHE SPECIAL KARTE von dem Fürstenthum Ostfries- und dem Harrlingerlande Ingleichen den Herrschaften Jever und Kniphausen als dem ietzigen XIten Departement des Königreichs Holland. Aufgenommen (…) durch (…) W. Camp, H. Bunnik und W. v.d. Linden." Ostfriesland/Amst., 1804. Very fine and detailed map engr. by C. Jättnig, printed on 2 sheets which can be conjoined to form a large map. W. scale indicator, and 2 cartouches in the left lower and right lower corner. 760 x 925 mm.

The engineers who made this map remained loyal to the House of Orange and fled to Prussia in 1795 where they were given order for the mapping. The result was a manuscript map on a scale of approx. 1:60.000 from which this map was deducted. In the west, the map extends to the city of Groningen, as a result of which it also has significance for the historical cartography of the Netherlands, in particular through a detailed topography of the settlements. (Cf. Koeman, Geschiedenis, p. 185). In very fine condition, fully margined.
