Cartographer(s)

Willem Blaeu

Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) founded one of history’s greatest cartographic publishing firms in 1599. This map is indicative of the duplication by the firms of Blaeu and Hondius/Jansson. In this case, Blaeu has copied a Janssonius map of 1637.

Condition Description

Repaired tear in the lower part of the centerfold and rumpled corner; otherwise in great condition and a lovely image.
