This map became somewhat of a "mother" map because of its accuracy. Jansoon in 1641 copied it almost exactly. The N.M.C. holds 3 copies of this map. One is on page 193 of Vol. II of Blaeu's 1650 edition of: Le Theatre du Monde. Another copy is located in Vol. II of the 1645 edition of the atlas.
Releif shown pictorially.
