MANUSCRIPT MAP in black ink on paper (in a fine CONTEMPORARY HAND-COLOURING) with title at top, 4 legends (with Dutch text) & compass-rose, consisting of 3 attached leaves (of which 2 watermarked “C & I Honig”) with outer blank margins bordered with green silk (incl. 1 tie). Ca. 91 x 167 cm.

¶ Cf. Koeman (Geschiedenis van de kartografie van Nederland) p. 145 & pp. 154-155 and Fockema Andreae/ Van ’t Hoff pp. 71-72. Beautiful & very detailed MANUSCRIPT MAP of the Lopikerwaard (a polder located between Zuid-Holland & Utrecht) depicting the canals & drainages situated between the rivers IJssel & Lek in the surroundings of i.a. Haastrecht, Oudewater, Montfoort, IJsselstein, Vianen, Nieuwpoort & Schoonhoven. The scale of the map is “600 Roeden Rhynlants”[=ca. 1:16.000]. Two legends are titled: “Aanwysinge van alle de Boesems, Watermolens, en Sluysen der Uytwateringen van den Lopicker-Waard: zoo op den Yssel, de Leck, als de Vlist; [..]” & “Renvoy van alle de Hoofden, Cribben, en Packwerken; Geleegen aan de Noord Leckendijck”. ¶ The Dutch surveyor-engineer David Willem Carel Hattinga (1730-1790), son of the physician & cartographer Willem Tiberius Hattinga (1700-1764), surveyed this map in September & October 1771, probably by order of a water-board considering the detailed information on the local drainage-systems. At the end of the extensive legend in the outer part D.W.C. Hattinga remarks: “Deese Meetinge ende Kaarteeringe van den Geheelen Loopicker-Waard, en Annexe Landen is gedaan in de maanden September en October Ao. 1771, door mij ondergeschreeve Gesworen Landmeeter voor den Edele Hoove van Vlaanderen binnen Middelburg in Zeeland Resideerende; In teecken der Waarheijd Certificeere deezen binnen Hulst in Staats Vlaanderen den 23 Julij 1772”. This manuscript map stood model for a map engraved by Barent de Bakker (active between 1762-1805) which was published in 1785 in Amsterdam by Leonard Schenk Jansz. (1732-1800). The date mentioned on the engraved map (“den 8sten January Ao. 1772”) differs from the date mentioned on our manuscript map (“den 23 Julij 1772”), so probably our manuscript map is a revised version. In 1993 a facsimile-reprint was published by Canaletto (Alphen aan den Rijn) with an introduction by Leendert Aardoom. ¶ Outer margins occ. sl. waterstained (upper corners worse), outer blank margin of lower right corner sl. frayed/ torn, occ. sl. creased, but nevertheless in good condition.
