Chorographia Sacra Brabantiae
sive celebrium aliquot in ea Provincia abbatarium, coenobiorum, monasteriorum, ecclesiarum, piarumque fundationum description
Folio. Illustrated with 65 superb plates, mostly folding double-page. The plates are large and detailed birds-eye views of monasteries, abbeys and churches. Further illustration consists of a frontispiece portrait of the author, a vignette to the title pages (by D. Coster) and an engraved vignette to the start of each of the chapters, depicting coat-of-arms of monasteries or their abbots and saints. The plates are drawn by Harrewijn, D. Coster, Berterham, R. Blokhuijse and P. de Doncker (where they are signed). Further decoration: a wood engraved tailpiece to the end of every chapter.

The second edition – 60 years after the first – of Sanderus’ masterpiece on the abbeys, churches and other places of worship and devotion in the Duchy of Brabant. This edition is known to be less complete than the first, but with a new set of plates, that are often drawn from a different perspective, thus increasing the book’s topographical value.
