A scarce map of Poitou, engraved by either Pieter van den Keere or Jodocus Hondius for the 1598 'Caert-Thresoor', with a text by an unknown author. Despite being published a year after the first edition, this is a second state: the lateral borders have been re-engraved with latitude graduations.
By 1600 this map was being published in the 'Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum' with a text by Petrus Bertius, and in 1616 a new plate was engraved by Jodocus Hondius II, slightly larger and with wider borders with scales of longitude and latitude.
