SUFFOLCIA

Vernacule

SUFFOLKE


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 Suffolk.

The title is displayed in a decorative cartouche with numerous coats of arms of several noblemen.


A scale of miles appears in a second cartouche featuring harvest produce. Sailing ships in the German Sea add to the visual appeal.

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

Fine condition other than some light scuffing/marking where the centre fold passes through the title cartouche as seen.

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


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

Please see also close up images.


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.
