SOLD Scotia Regnum...
Date: c 1640
Size: 23.5 x 19.5 inches
(590 x 500 mm).
"Scotia Regnum" from Blaeu's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Amsterdam, ca. 1640-1660.
A very decorative double page folio map of Scotland.
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.
