Amstelodamum In quo cedes Sacrae, Curia Hospitalia, cum vicis et Burchvallis omniumquae interfluentiumalueis, accurate omnia delineantur, . . .

This city map oriented to the southwest is an update of the view of Amsterdam dating from 1572 shown in Volume I of the Civitates. It became necessary because of the drastic changes that had taken place since then. In the course of the city's rapid increase in prosperity, resulting not least from the East Indian trade, it was also considerably extended in size. The Oude Kerk, built before 1300 and converted into a basilica in the 16th century, can be made out, as can the fortifications of 1593, some of the most modern at the time, featuring 12 bastions. In addition, the map documents the extension of the city resolved in 1607, which began with the construction of fortifications in the west; these marked the new boundary of the city, and the planned continuation is indicated in outline.
