All major harbours, river estuaries and saltpans are labeled, while the seas are traversed by rhumlines.

Very good - excellent condition.
Theunisz charts are reasonably uncommon.

The Theunisz firm of Amsterdam chartmakers was founded by Antonie Jacobz (Theunisz) (c. 1606 – 1650), who issued the first edition of the Zeespiegel in 1644. The enterprise operated under the name “Lootsman” (pilot) in order to avoid confusion with another printing company by the Theunisz name.
