Nederlands Rijksarchief

The Department of Maps and Drawings of the Netherlands Nationaal Archief manages the maps and drawings of the central government offices and the governmental and provincial institutions in the province of Zuid-Holland, which are older than 50 years.

The National Library of the Netherlands has a description of this collection. A significant portion of these maps have been published on microfiche by MMF Publications.

MMF Publications have kindly allowed me to make an online guide to this collection available.

All map images on this site are © Nederlands Algemeen Rijksarchief, and are made available with their kind permission. Copies of the images on microfiche can be purchased from MMF Publications.

A searchable concordance of map references to fiche contained in the microfiche collection is available.

The Leupe inventory is being transcribed. The online version currently contains entries from the South American region. Some entries have attached images of the maps. You can search/browse the inventory.

The Nederlands Algemeen Rijksarchief have given permission for a small number of scanned images to made available. A couple of these scanned images appear below.
