  • Date:1587 c.
  • Cartographer:Anonymous
  • Size:8.3 x 10.6 in.

    A very nice and detailed birds' eye view map of the market city of Ghent (Gent), Netherlands, at the confluence of Scheldt and Leie rivers. The view of Ghent shows the military encampment of Mansfelt and Mondragon across the river from the walled and moated town, with the Duke of Parma's camp across the smaller river. Mansfelt and Mondragon served in the 80 Years' War or Dutch War of Independence (1568-1648). Eventually the Dutch (Seventeen Provinces) would win their sovereignty and be recognized as an independent country. German Text.
