This later edition of the Frederick de Wit's 1666 plan features minor alterations to the title and some additions on the outskirts of the city. The map's title appears along the top, with the key to parish churches (in scrolls) at top left and top right, and dividers at top right. An engraving depicting the city on fire is inset at bottom right. Below the plan, a description of the fire is reported in Dutch and French. This edition of the map shows cherubs holding the reference tables and a waterman with oars leaning against the view of the city.
