About this Item: "Lacus Lemanni Locorumquae Circumiacentium Accuratissima Descriptio" Kopergravure van het Meer van Genève uitgegeven door Willem Blaeu te Amsterdam als deel van zijn Novus Atlas, 1641-42. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 41,5 x 52 cm. Deze prachtig gegraveerde kaart van de omgeving van het meer van Genève is gebaseerd op het werk van de Zwitserse theoloog Jacques Goulart (1580-1622). Talloze minutieuze details, zoals landgoederen, wijngaarden, parken, versterkte steden en kleine dorpjes zijn weergegeven, evenals aantekeningen over de pogingen van de hertog van Savoye om de controle over Genève te krijgen. Genève een belangrijke hanzestad, die in de Middeleeuwen handelaren uit Noord- en Zuid-Europa een marktplaats bood, was ook de stad waar een nieuwe golf van protestantisme ontstond die in de 16e-eeuw door Europa ging. De Fransman Johannes Calvijn (1509-1564) verspreidde vanaf 1641 zijn ideeën vanuit Genève en kreeg met zijn Calvinisme binnen enkele jaren voet aan de grond in Frankrijk, Duitsland en Nederland. Prijs: Euro 750,-. Seller Inventory # 2732

About this Item: 1645. Large Folio (500 x 336 mm); engraved title-page with letter-press paste-over; sixtytwo engraved maps, all but one double-page, comprising fifty-eight of Italy and its regions, and four of Greece and regions, including Crete. 18th century mottled calf, seven raised bands, gilt floral tooling and gilt lettering to spine. Both joints split (binding still holding), boards and spine worn, tooling and lettering faded. Amsterdam : Johannes Blaeu, The Blaeu family were the pre-eminent Dutch atlas-publishers of their period. The family published their first terrestrial atlas in 1630, with the multi-volume Atlas Novus launched in 1635. They continued to enlarge the atlas over the next thirty-five years, adding new maps to expand sections, but also preparing separate volumes devoted to England and Wales, Scotland and China. This is the third volume of the Atlas Novus, devoted to Italy, the coverage of that county expanded to almost fill an entire volume, with a small section at the end of Greece. Although not technically an atlas of Italy, the suite of maps relating to Italy and its provinces represents the next geographic advance on Giovanni Antonio Magini?s atlas Italia ., the first separate printed atlas of Italy, first published in 1620 and reissued in 1632. The maps are accompanied by a descriptive geographical text in Latin. Reference: Koeman, BL 37A; the index calls for a section with maps of Scotland and Ireland but this is not, and never was, present, as usual when this volume was issued in the set with the England volume, where the maps were placed.

About this Item: Amsterdam, 1648. Folio. (20 3/4 x 13 inches). French text, letterpress title on slip within hand-coloured engraved architectural border, heightened in gilt, 60 engraved general and county maps (59 double page) including general maps of Scotland and Ireland preceded by a printed divisional half-title (not called for in the index at end), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand, 71 illustrations (3 hand-coloured). Contemporary red morocco, paneled in gilt with fillets and decorative rolls, the inner panel with elaborate blocked cornerpieces of stylized scrolling foliage, a blocked central oval of scrolling flowers and foliage enclosing a small blank oval, the spine gilt in eight compartments with raised bands, each compartment with a central rose flower-head tool and a small flower-spray tool at each corner, green cloth ties, gilt edges, modern tan cloth box, brown morocco lettering-piece. An unrecorded variant edition of Blaeu's atlas of England and Wales, in a magnificent contemporary red morocco binding. The fifty-eight maps normally found in the French editions are supplemented by an appendix with a half-title and two new maps. These new maps are general maps of Scotland and Ireland, which were the first two maps completed for Blaeu's atlas of Scotland. The forthcoming publication of the Scotland atlas is announced on the half-title, but it did not appear on the market until 1654 (as volume 5 of the Theatrum). Neither Koeman nor Skelton mention a French edition with this appendix, which is normally found in the Dutch-text edition of 1647 (Koeman B145B). The ephemeral nature of this edition is confirmed by the fact that the supplement is not mentioned in the index at the end. The present atlas is volume four of the six-volume French text edition of the Theatrum (or Théâtre du Monde). The volumes of the Theatrum were published separately from 1635 to 1655. Volume 4 was introduced with French text in 1645. In its completed form, the Theatrum was the finest and most accurate atlas yet to have been published.

After succeeding his father, Joannes Blaeu progressively expanded the "Atlas Novus" to six volumes by 1655, and this formed the first half the "Atlas Maior," extending to 11 or 12 volumes by 1662.

About this Item: [Amsterdam: Joannes and Willem Blaeu, 1655]., 1655. Full Vellum. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Complete title: Novus atlas sinensis a Martino Martinio Soc. Iesu descriptus et serenessimo archidvci Leopoldo Gvilielmo Avstriaco Dedicatvs. Cum privilegio S.C. Maj. et Ordd. Foed. Belg. Folio (21 x 14 inches). Engraved allegorical title-page with original hand-colour HEIGHTENED IN GOLD (creased, edges a bit frayed), 17 fine double-page engraved maps of Asia with original hand-colour in outline (2x1 with long tear crossing the text repaired in the margin at an early date, map of Japan a bit spotted as are some text leaves, one map with short closed tear, some lower margins with pale waterstains). Contemporary Dutch gilt panelled vellum over thin paste-board with yap fore-edges, all edges gilt (lacking two pairs of ties, lightly soiled but ATTRACTIVE). FIRST AND ONLY DUTCH EDITION OF VOL. VI OF BLAEU'S SIX-VOLUME NIEUE ATLAS DEPICTING THE CHINESE EMPIRE, ITS 15 PROVINCES, AND JAPAN. The Novus Atlas Sinensis was compiled by the Italian Jesuit Martino Martini (1614-1661), and it is the first atlas of China produced in the western world, the first comprehensive visually descriptive work on China with accompanying historical texts, perhaps the first true Sino-European publications, based as it was on Chinese land surveys, and was the first of very many illustrated works and translations of works about China in the 17th and 18th centuries. "The seventeen maps are noteworthy not only for their accuracy, remarkable for the time, but also for their highly decorative cartouches featuring vignettes depicting regional Chinese dress, activities and animals. Along with the maps, the volume contains 171 pages of Latin text by Martini comprising a preface on the Far East and descriptions of each province in China as well as the Liaodong and Korean peninsulas and Japan. Also included in the volume are two separately paginated works: Jacobus Golius's De Regno Catayo Additamentum ("An Addition on the Chinese Reign") and Martini's De Bello Tartarico Historia ("History Concerning the Tartar War," 1654), both of which were also published as separate titles" (Reed and Dematte, p. 188). Martini set out for Asia in March 1640, "traveling initially to India, reaching Goa later that year, and then to China, reaching Hangzhou in 1643. After impressive missionary works--baptizing hundreds of converts in Hangzhou--Martini was called back to Rome in 1650 to represent both the accomplishments of the Jesuit mission in China and its needs. En route to Rome, he landed in Amsterdam in 1654, where he met Blaeu, and they worked together to create the Novus Atlas Sinensis. Martini had brought with him copies of Chinese atlases, among them Luo Hongxian's Guangyu tu ("Englarged Terrestrial Atlas," 1579), a Ming-dynasty atlas (based on the monumental Yuan-dynasty map compiled by Zhu Siben between 1311 and 1320) that included, apart from the general map of China, maps of the various provinces and border regions. Martini finally reached Rome at the end of 1655 but set out for China in 1657. He died in Hangzhou in 1661" (ibid.). The Blaeu family firm was founded by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) in 1596. He was eventually joined by his sons, Cornelius (1616-1648) and Joannes (1596-1673). The firm became the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands until it was destroyed by fire in 1672. The elder Blaeu initiated the great series of atlases that culminated in the Atlas Maior, in which Joannes Blaeu incorporated much of the geographical knowledge bequeathed him by his father.

About this Item: Amsterdam, 1645. 4 volumes, folio. (20 x 13 1/2 inches). 334 copper-engraved maps with very fine period hand-colouring. Original publisher's vellum, panelled in gilt with central gilt arabesques and corner pieces, cloth ties, modern black morocco-backed cloth boxes, gilt spines An early edition of the greatest world atlas ever produced. The Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Theatre du Monde, in French) marks the intermediary stage in the development of the "greatest and finest atlas ever published" (Koeman). In 1630, Willem Janzzon Blaeu, the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company, published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps. The second expanded edition, with 99 maps, appeared in the following year. Blaeu continued to produce new maps at such a rate that by 1634, he abandoned the single volume format, and announced his intention to publish a new world atlas, entitled the Theatrum. This atlas, which originally incorporated most of the maps from Blaeu's Appendix, was expanded so rapidly that by 1646, when this version appeared, it consisted of four volumes with 334 maps. The acclaim that Blaeu's atlas has always received is based primarily upon its extremely high production standards. The quality of the engraving, the paper, and colouring are of the highest order, and place it in the first rank among seventeenth century illustrated books. The maps are embellished in the Baroque style, and many rank among the most beautiful ever made. Of particular note are the famous side-panelled maps of the world and four continents, sixty devoted to Great Britain (Volume IV), the map of the environs of Frankfurt (Volume I), a fine map of China and Japan (Volume III), and a series of thirteen maps of America (Volume III) that includes early and important maps of New England and the Chesapeake Bay. Volume I. Le Theatre du Monde, ou Nouvel Atlas Contenant Les Chartes et Descriptions de tous les Pais de la Terre Mis en Lumiere Par Guillaume et Jean Blaeu. Amsterdam, Johannem Guiljemi F. Blaeu:1645. Folio, two title pages, 120 maps (Koeman Bl 19B). The number and order of the maps is the same as in the French edition of 1638 (Koeman B1 16A), but with altered signatures and page numbers. Part I: World map, plus 83 maps of Germany, Scandinavia, the Arctic and eastern Europe, several oversized and folding. Part II: 36 maps of the Lowlands. Volume II. Le Theatre du Monde, ou Nouvel Atlas Mis en lumiere par Guillaume & Jean Blaeu. Seconde Partie. Amsterdam, chez Jean Blaeu: 1645. Large folio, two engraved title-pages with each title printed on slip of paper, laid down, 92 maps. (Koeman B1 18C) Collation is the same as in the French edition of 1640 (Koeman B1 17), but with altered (corrected) signatures and page numbers: Part I: 48 maps of France; Part II: 14 maps of Spain and Portugal, 12 maps of Asia, 5 maps of Africa, 13 maps of America. Volume III. Le Theatre du Monde, ou Nouvel Atlas mis en lumiere par Guillaume & Jean Blaeu. Troisieme Partie. Amsterdam, Chez Jean Blaeu: 1645. Folio, 62 maps, engraved title-page with title printed on separate slip of paper, laid down. (Koeman Bl 35F) Collation is the same as the first French edition of 1640 (Koeman Bl 35A): 58 maps of Italy and four maps of Greece. The register at the end calls for an additional four maps of Great Britain, which had been added as a supplement to the second French edition (also 1640). With the introduction in 1645 of volume IV, devoted solely to Great Britain, they were removed. Volume IV. Guil. et Joannis Blaeu Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive Atlas Novus, pars quarta. Amsterdam, apud Johannem Blaeu: 1646. Folio, 60 maps, several engravings of British antiquities interspersed throughout the text, engraved title page with title printed on separate slip of paper, laid down. (Koeman B1 42B) "This edition of 1646 is identical with the former [first] edition of 1645" (Koeman Bl 42A). In point of fact, this volume contains two maps, one of Scotland, the other of Ireland, that are not called for in the index. It also varies in that the inlaid title slip is in Latin rather than in French. Koeman Bl 19B; 18C; 35A; 42B. Seller Inventory # 6850

About this Item: Amsterdam: Joannes and Willem Blaeu, 1649 - 1647 - 1648 - 1654 - 1656., 1656. 6 volumes. Folio. 8 engraved allegorical title-pages, all but the first with printed overslips for the title and or imprint, all with EXCEPTIONAL ORIGINAL HAND-COLOUR HEIGHTENED IN GOLD, PROBABLY BY FRANS KOERTEN AND HIS STUDIO. 404 engraved maps, the majority double-page, seven folding, and some full-page, all with original hand-colour in outline, and all mounted on guards (map of Lithuania in volume one with expert repairs to folds, minor marginal tears to three maps, not affecting the images, pale marginal waterstains to the first third of volume one, volume V - Scotland - very browned, and volume VI - Asia - quite browned). Contemporary Dutch vellum over paste-board, elaborately decorated in gilt, with remains of 12 pairs of silk ties (small chip in backstrip of volume V, extremities a bit scuffed, spines lightly soiled, early bookplate removed from each paste-down). Provenance: 20th-century manuscript ex-libris on front paste-down of each volume. A FINE LARGE PAPER DELUXE COPY PROBABLY COLOURED BY FRANS KOERTEN AND HIS STUDIO. The German edition of Joannes and Willem Blaeu's "Novvus atlas", first published as three-volumes in 1641-1642 (world, the continents including fifteen maps of the Americas, northern and eastern Europe, Italy and Greece); they enlarged it to four volumes in 1646 (England); published a new edition with four volumes in 1647; and then enlarged that to five and six volumes in 1654 (Scotland) and 1655 (China) respectively. The Blaeu family firm was founded by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) in 1596. He was eventually joined by his sons, Cornelius (1616-1648) and Joannes (1596-1673). The firm became the most productive cartographic establishment in the Netherlands until it was destroyed by fire in 1672. The elder Blaeu initiated the great series of atlases that culminated in the "Atlas Maior". Truusje Goedings, renowned expert in Dutch colourists of the 17th-century writes of this copy: "Contemporary colour in a style very characteristic for the Blaeu atlases before the 'Atlas Maior', ie between ca. 1635-1656, and initiated by Willem Blaeu I. Archival documents reveal that colored copies could be ordered at the Blaeu firm, and were made according Blaeu's instructions from the very start. The underlying principles were the same throughout (including the 'Atlas Maior'): a lavishly coloured title-page, often more or less heightened with gold; a functional colouring of the maps and a contrasting, more extensive treatment of the map decorations. Comparison shows that except for the title-pages, and independent of their degree of luxury, the maps of early copies were coloured more soberly and have a much more open and plain style. "This large paper copy in typical Dutch gilt vellum atlas bindings has extensively and expertly coloured title-pages, each lavishly heightened with gold especially in the first and fourth volumes, with a lively variety of colours and a careful handling of details such as fruitguirlandes and clothing of figures. The cartography of the maps is executed carefully but soberly, keeping the overall view rather white: the dividing or surrounding borderlines are in general drawn in single lines, in very pale hues of rosa, yellow and green; the detailed engraved mountain- or wooded regions are not worked out but indicated in the same way as the border lines with one very light and transparant (broader) stroke of pale green or umber. Small embellishments such as boats, waves, heraldry were given their special colours, places in the regions have red dots - signs that this colouring had a somewhat more than regular character. The larger decorations, such as legends and cartouches are often remarkably worked out. With a large variety of colours in bright and vivid combinations (see especially the Italy-volume, they produce a lively contrast with the dominant white of the regions). Comparison with one volume (5) of a coloured dedication copy (to Ferdinand of Liechtenstein, to which this edition al. Seller Inventory # 72lib27
