Rare lithography, edition Vander Maelen, "Bruxelles, Établissement Géographique". General Baron Krayenhoff was a versatile man. Krayenhoff was from Nijmegen and a doctor (graduated in Harderwijk), cartographer, soldier and expert in the field of water management and fortifications. Napoleon appointed him brigade general and inspector general of the French Genie. In 1813, he was raised in the nobility and in 1818 was given the ‘Militaire Willemsorde’.
This edition is a sequel to his 'Choro-topographische kaart der Noordelijke provinciën van het koningrijk der Nederlanden' which was completed in 1823. Krayenhoff was instructed to make a land-covering map. The available map material was no longer sufficient and thus he has produced maps based on a triangular measurement (with "height reference points") and with a primary and secondary network. Because of the good geodesic foundations, his maps are even now of great significance for geographical historical research.
