Комментарий владельца к этому изданию плана:

Detailed bird's-eye town-plan of Moscow from Frederick de Wit's rare townbook. With a key (1-20) to important spots in town.

Frederick de Wit published after 1694 a town book of European and Asian cities (Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae?) composed of 132 plans and views, mainly printed from the plates obtained from Janssonius. The date of publication is uncertain, but must be after 1694 when he bought the stock of copper plates from Janssonius. He also published in or after 1698 two editions of a town book of the Netherlands with 124 plans and views.

Usually F. de Wit added his address "F.de Wit Excudit Amstelodami" and a scale border, when not originally added. This plate is printed from a Janssonius plate but has no address added, and has a blanc verso.

His weduw continued the business after his death, but in 1710 the stock was sold to Coven & Mortier, who on his turn sold the stock to Pieter van der Aa of Leiden, who used the plates to print his multi-volume work, "La gal?rie agr?able du Monde".
