Title : Devonia vulgo Devon-shire..
Map maker : BLAEU, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1658.
Size : 15.4 x 20.5 inches. / 39.0 x 52.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :Double-page map of Devonshire county. The map is enriched with allegorical figures and attributes representing the economical and cultural character of the province. French text on verso.
Blaeu established his firm in 1599 as instrument and globe makers. He went on to produce some of the highest quality atlases ever published.
Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founder of the Blaeu publishing house. In 1634 he commenced publication of the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" or "Novus Atlas" and on his death he was succeeded by his son Johannes (1596-1673). Johannes continuously enlarged and updated the "Theatrum" up to 1658, including the addition of a separate volume devoted to England and Wales. Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing. The county maps have decorative title cartouches and often depict the coats of arms of those families with important county links.

The map is in a strictly contemporary colouring and of the highest level. More about "colouring of antique maps [+]
