Middelburgum. Amplißimis Prudentißimisque viris D. D. Praetori Consulibus, scabinis et senatui Urbis Middelburgensis Tabulum hanc D. D. D. J. Blaeu.
Joan Blaeu Amsterdam 1649 - Double-page, engraved, hand-coloured map, Latin text on verso. Dimensions: 460 by 560mm. (18 by 22 inches). From Joan Blaeu's town book of the Netherlands, first published one year after the peace of Munster and the Spanish acknowledgement of the Dutch Republic. Blaeu planned his town book towards the end of the battle with Spain to consist of two volumes; one showing the towns of the Republic, the other showing towns belonging to Spain. In the second edition, due to a large scale re-conquest of land by the Republic, Blaeu had to transfer several towns to the volume showing towns of the Republic and as a consequence this volume became larger than the other; thus the composition of the atlas became linked to the struggle for independence of the Republic. This birds-eye view of Middelburg clearly shows the town's defences, the city walls and moat and canons at two different locations. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici B1 64.
