Comitatus NOTTINGHAMIENSIS

NOTTINGHAM SHIRE

by

JOHANNES BLAEU

Published Amsterdam 1662 in;

"Geographiae Blauianae Volumen Quintum quo Angliae quae est Europae liber undecimus continetur".


A fine original Blaeu copper engraved map of Nottinghamshire.

The title is displayed in a decorative cartouche featuring a wheat harvesting scene.

The scale of miles is displayed lower right in a second cartouche surmounted by putti.

Royal coats of arms and those of several local noblemen add to the visual appeal.


Enhanced with contemporary hand colour which remains bright and fresh. Latin text verso.

Fine condition other than a faint scattering of light spotting as seen. Centre fold as issued.

A crisp, dark impression. The heavy grade hand laid paper remains robust and stable.

Approx. 19.5" x 15" (500mm x 380mm) map area only, with full margins beyond.

Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571 -1638) founded the Blaeu publishing company which dominated the map making industry of 17th century Netherlands. His sons Joan (Johannes) and Cornelius continued the family business after Willem's death in 1638. Their greatest achievement was perhaps the famous atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Sive, Atlas Novus", which eventually ran to 12 volumes and was published in several languages from 1635 - 1662. The print shop and warehouse was destroyed by fire in 1672 and Willem's last son died the following year.
