Proposé à la vente est une carte antique, Nouveau Indicateur des Distances des principals Villes du Royaume des Pays-Bas. Publiée à Rotterdam par Chez Arbon & Krap. 1826. Carte gravée sur cuivre par J. C. Zürcher. Tableau répondant très-distinctement au but que le titre mentionne. Les coleurs différentes des diverses colonnes facilitent la recherché des distances. Quelques petites taches sombres dispersés, pas réputés être rousseurs. En outre, mystérieusement, quelques petits trous, parfaitement ronds. Flou marque, environ à la marge supérieure, pas dans la plaque. Sinon une feuille remarquablement propre. This is an attractive, copper-engraved 19th century table of distances regarding principal towns and cities in Belgium, more or less equivalent to the former Royaume des Pays-Bas. Engraved by J. C. Zürcher [1794-1882]. For ease of reading the columns are variously in light green, light yellow and light pink. Published in Rotterdam by chez Arbon & Krap. 1826. Believed first engraved and published in 1820. Includes publisher's small blindstamp. The table of distances, outlined in black, about 15 x 19 inches. The sheet measures about 19 x 24 inches. Presumed rag content paper. There are two gentle fold marks, one horizontal and one vertical, such that when fully folded the measurement is about 9.5 x 12 inches. A few scattered tiny dark spots, not deemed to be foxing. Also, mysteriously, a few tiny, perfectly round holes. Faint tidewater mark, about 3.5 x 1.5 inches, to the upper margin, not into the plate. Else a remarkably clean sheet. A Very Good Minus copy of a somewhat scarce item. After the Belgian revolution and succession [1830-39] the term Royaume des Pays-Bas was used to refer to the southern, or Belgium, provinces of the greater Netherlands.
