In the background is a map of the Netherlands, bearing the lion of Holland. As is often the case in 17th-century maps, north is not at the top but on the right.

The map is inscribed in the right background: 'H(?)AR(E?) GE(R?)WANIC UM / DE NO (O?)RT ZEE'. This is a faulty transcription of 'Mare Germanicum', Latin for the North Sea.

20% Cancellation Fee on Made to Order products

If you decided to cancel your made-to-order print for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price. We'll therefore charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the order price.
