LOW COUNTRIES -- DELFT -- ("KAART FIGURATIEF"). (Amst.), P. Smith, (1702 (?)). Collection of 16 (of 24) engr. views ('randprenten') which surround the so-called Kaart Figuratief of Delft by D.E. v. Bleyswijck, and text-leaf 'Sommiere Beschryvinge der Stadt Delft'. Loose as issued.Dirck Evertsz. van Bleyswijck, was commissioned in 1675 to have a map made with accompanying images of buildings and cityscapes. When the map was ready in 1678, it consisted of a bird's eye view, a view of Delft from the west, Delfshaven seen from the Maas, 22 images of buildings, two maps of Overschie and Delfshaven, four family coats of arms of Delft mayors and a short text with a description of the city of Delft. The floor plan with the border prints could be put together into one monumental wall map. Our collection consists also of - a very rare - folded broadside w. instructions on how to arrange the individual prints of this wall map.
