The beautiful copper plate used as an engraved title represents allegorical figures, Maurice van Nassau's coat of arms and the coats of arms of the Seven United Provinces of the Netherlands. The numerous engravings in the text show maps with numerous details, portraits, cities, townscapes, battles, victories, historical scenes, and so on.
