 A very rare map of Europe on vellum. Only two documented copies of the Lootsman edition are known.

The map is oriented with West up. On basis of the depicted ‘Gael Hamke Baai’ between Clavering and Home Forland a date from 1654 is possible, since a shipper called Hamke discovered the bay in the same year. The bay also appears on the maps of Doncker and Goos (1666), who must have taken Lootsman’s publication as an example. In its turn, the present Pascaerte pays tribute to a map by Blaeu which is generally dated circa 1625. In an unpublished study by James Welu, director of the Worcester Art Museum, seven variations on the chart are distinguished. There are only two documented copies of the Lootsman edition, kept in respectively the maritime museums of Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
