From the museum website

The first large exhibition of the new city archive is Het aanzien van Amsterdam: profielen en plattegronden uit de Gouden Eeuw (The presence [literally, the appearance or the prestige] of Amsterdam: profiles and groundplans from the Golden Age). Three aspects of the subject are featured: the actual appearance of the city; pictures of the city as projected by artists; and the image of Amsterdam. Thanks to loans from the Netherlands and abroad, several multi-sheet profiles and maps that have been divided can be shown here together for the first time in centuries.
