The surrounding decoration of this map is quite different from Visscher's earlier map. In the corners are vivid scenes showing the various signs of the zodiac accompanied by cherubs and other heavenly figures. There is no signature of any engraver. This state with the text cum Privilegio Ordin: General: Belgii Foederati printed below the title appeared in Van Keulen's 1695 atlas. (Shirley)
