JOAN BLEAU - Toonneel der Steden

The optional maps below are scanned from a facsimile publication of the 'Bleau's Toonneel der Steden' from 1652.The order in which the maps are presented, is not the original order and some of the maps have not yet been scanned. The towns of the provinces Holland and Utrecht are in the first part. The other maps come from the second part. Not all maps have the same size: some maps are printed over two pages, and sometimes four maps are printed on two pages. There are also historical descriptions of the places in the "Toonneel der Steden". For a number of cities, students of the University of Groningen have written short "histories", some of which are in the Dutch language.
