Blaeu's Toonneel der Steden - 1652

These maps have been scanned from a facsimile publication of the Blaeu's Toonneel der Steden from 1652. The order in which we present the maps is not the original order.
The original order you can find here.

Some of the maps have not yet been scanned. Not all maps have the same size: some maps are printed over two pages, and sometimes four maps are printed on two pages. There is also a historical description of the places in the "Toonneel der Steden". Next to the city maps are a number of picture of "Huizen" (castles), the Courts in The Hague and a curious picture of the "Zeilwagen van Prins Maurits" (sailing car of Prince Maurits).

For a number of cities students of the University of Groningen have written short "histories", some of which are in the Dutch language.

If you chose the GIF version you will get a 640x480 image: the JPEG versions offer more detail but are rather large files and will therefor take some time to load.
