This chapter outlines consumer demand for maps in early seventeenth-century Amsterdam. Production of and demand for maps was reflected social demands and contemporary events. Maps helped form a picture of a unified nation, as well as allowed individuals to distinguish themselves through display. The threads of agency within the system are explained by describing social organization, government and commercial company structures.
