= The first detailed map of Aruba, "gevolgd naar de opmeting in den jare 1820 gedaan, onder directie van den Kapitein ter Zee W.A. van Spengler en in den jare 1825 met verscheidene nieuwe bepalingen verrykt door den Kapitein R.F. van Raders". In 1773 a large map on seventeen sheets was made, which showed only the island's coastline. The present map was made after the Netherlands regained possession of 'Curaçao en Onderhorigheden' in 1816. Up-to-date reports and maps of Curaçao and Bonaire were soon made, but a survey of Aruba had to wait until 1820, when Captain Van Spengler, port warden of Curaçao from 1816 onwards, offered to perform this task. A copy of his manuscript map eventually found its way to the 'Departement van oorlog of Koloniën' in The Hague. In 1824, news arrived in The Hague that gold was found on Aruba. Immediately, Captain R.F. van Raders was sent to the island to investigate. During his three visits to Aruba in 1824 and 1825, Van Raders carried Van Spengler's map or a copy of it, and added new information to it concerning the gold mining. In 1825, this manuscript map was made in print. For extensive information on the mapping of Aruba in this period, see Caert Thresoar 2009-3, p.65-70. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXXIII.

Eisen depicting the presentation of the map to emperor Joseph II. Sheet XXI presents a plan of Brussels: "Plan Topographique de la Ville de Bruxelles et de ses environs". The map was first produced in three coloured manuscript copies, each on 275 sheets, between 1771 and 1777 on the scale of 1:11.520. It was inspired by and based on the geometrical method used for the large Carte de France surveyed by C.F. Cassini thirty years earlier. The manuscript maps then led to the publication of an engraved reduction on the scale of 1:86.400 and named Carte Chorographique, or Carte Marchande since this edition was meant for sale.
