Koeman M. Mor 1, map 10. Only state. Notwithstanding to the remark on the map “Levée et Gravée Par Ordre Exprez du Roy. A Paris 1693” the map was printed in Amsterdam. - Full impression of the plate on strong Dutch laid paper with original margins at all sides, bottom margin short. Full original wash colour. Light offsetting of areas coloured in light Green to the opposite side of the map, especially to the left hand side. But no breaking through of outlines or of areas coloured in Green! – Even with the offsetting a very good copy. Copies in outline colour can frequently be found. But examples in full original colour are scarce!
