Page 136 from a book, featuring an engraving of both sides of a Dutch medal. On one side is a sea scene with three island or peninsula cities and several small boats, and a small dolphin flanked by two pots. On the other is a farmer driving his oxen during a lightning storm. Text in French, above and on verso (p. 135), describes the history of Zeeland as it relates to interesting medals.
