Very nice map of the domain of Cassel in the county of Flanders, commonly called Cassel Ambacht by Vedastus du Plovich, Antoine Sanders (1586-1664) and Henricus Hondius (1597-1651).

The map is centered on the domain of Cassel where its borders are traced with a colored outline of the time. It is finely decorated with two large cartouches and the coat of arms of Flanders.

This map first appeared in Sanderus' Flandria Illustrata, vol. II. (Klön: Cornelis van Egmondt c.s = Amsterdam Joan Blaeu, 1644). This copy appeared in the fourth volume of the Spanish edition Atlas Nuevo, printed in 1659-72.
