Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was arguably the greatest cartographer of the 17th century. He published his first atlas in 1630 and expanded this atlas repeatedly through his life, a publishing project that was continued by his disciples and sons after his death.
Fine map with wide margins and original hand colouring. In pristine antiquarian condition.
