QUACK, Jacob. [Wall map of the River Meuse from the Hook of Holland to Rotterdam]
Afbeeldinge van de Maes van de stadt Rotterdam tot in zee...Int licht gebracht door Jacob quacq postmeester der stadt Rotterdam met Octroy voor 15 Jaren 1665. Amsterdam: Reinier & Joshua Ottens, 1740. Four sheets, each 495 x 365mm (total if joined 495 x 1440mm)
A fine 4-sheet large map of the River Meuse (Maas) from the Hook of Holland upsteam to Rotterdam, decorated with a title cartouche featuring an allegorical figure of the river and a separate vignette of Neptune in his chariot. Jacob Quack (d. 1668), the postmaster of Rotterdam, produced a two-sheet 'Postcaert' of the river in 1665, primarily as an advertisment for his mail service from Rotterdam to the Indies. His work was not complete at the time of his death, so this is an adaptation, slightly updated.
