The map of the Danube , sheet 98, is most attractive with a number views along the river. Maps of Holland show polders and land parcels. The map of the British Isles, sheet 16, and that of Ireland, sheet 23, show cartography before and after the definitive map by Petty 1683. The cartouches on all the maps are highly embellished.
