The Herengracht and Keizersgracht, two of Amsterdam's most beautiful canals, can be seen and experienced in a unique way in this book. Photographs of the facades give a nice picture of the current facades. The drawings of Casper Philips from 1768, placed underneath, show what it was like. A lot has been lost, but most of all a lot has been preserved. Let yourself be tempted to get acquainted with Amsterdam in this way: sitting in a chair with the book on your lap or wandering along the canal and the extra information of the book.
