From the second volume of the "Spieghel Der Zeevaerdt" this chart shows the Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines from Blakeney to Walberswick. The North Sea is decorated with sailing ships and decorative compass roses. The "Spieghel ..." is unique among printed rutters of the sixteenth century, as it was the first to contain maps. Furthermore, it outranks any other rutter of the period with its splendid presentation of charts and text. As such, it stood out as a model for the folio pilot guides of the seventeenth century. Koeman writes; "Thanks to the unparalleled skill of the engravers Baptist and Johannes Van Deutecom, the original manuscript maps were transformed into the most beautiful maps of the period. The composition and adornment have greatly contributed to the splendour of what originally were simple sketch charts; the typography of the Plantijn printing house further added to the quality of the book". However, as the "Spieghel ..." proved too expensive and luxurious for ship-board use, Waghenaer also produced charts in a smaller, oblong folio format as the "Thresoor Der Zeevaerdt", which was first published in 1592, and re-issued concurrently with the "Spieghel ..." thereafter. Minor marginal reinforcement but a fine printing of this early pull from the plate, demonstrating clearly the quality of Doetecum's engraving.
