6 parts [of 10?] in 6 volumes, 4° (198 x 154mm).

This work was seen as part of a larger project by Tirion to describe and record the Netherlands. Isaac Tirion advertised the 300 plates he used for Rademaker's Kabinet van Nederlandsche en Kleefsche Outheden en Gezigten as a collection, which purchasers of Het Verheerlykt Nederland might like to add to the latter work as supplementary material.
