ULTRAIECTINI | DOMINI |TABULA | Multo aliis auctior | et correctior, Nicolaas Visscher (1681)Commissioned by Nicolaas Visscher II (1649-1702) the best artists in the Netherlands carried out much work for him as engravers and designers for the purpose of new editions. One of them was Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) from the town of Haarlem. He carried out many high quality maps, historical, and garden prints for Visscher. This map of the province of Utrecht is the result of a successful cooperation between engraver and publisher. According to the title, the map is adapted and corrected and is probable based on a general map of Holland and Utrecht by Balthasar Florisz. van Berckenrode (1591/92-1644) published in 1621 by Willem Jansz. Blaeu. This wall map was reissued in 1651, 1656 and 1682 by Visscher. In 1696, Nicolaas Visscher II published a new wall map of Utrecht by Bernard de Roy, surveyor in Utrecht.
