The Netherlands, 1851

Our largest map yet today.

The contributor, Yvette Hoitink, offers the following description:

"This remarkable map shows a view of the coast of the Netherlands. The actual map is about 10 cm (4") wide and 2 meters (7') long. It is used like a scroll. Beneath the scale, it names the maker: George Wilkinson, Cinque Ports Pilot, Superannuated, 23rd Nov. 1851. The map is in English. Please leave a comment if you have more information about this map."

Ms. Hoitink has asked that we link back to the Flickr page containing the map, so here is the link. Many thanks to her for providing this truly remarkable map.
