Title : Fossa quae a Rheno ad Mosa duci coepta est Anno MDCXXVII Excudit Guilj Janssonius Blaeuw.
Map maker : BLAEU, Willem Jansz..
Date : Amsterdam, (1630) 1634.
Size : 15.2 x 19.9 inches. / 38.5 x 50.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncolored.

Description :A highly decorative, well-prepared map. This is Variant "B" Blaeu's map of Fossa Eugeniana, an early canal which was intended to connect the Maas River (at Venlo) with the Rhine River at Rhynberk. This particular map only appeared in Blaeu's atlases starting with the Appendix of 1630 and ended with a French edition of 1635-38. This particular example is from the German edition of Blaeu's Novus Atlas, published in Amsterdam in 1634-35. This is a highly detailed map of the region, extending south to Kempen and north to Zanten.
Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century. R.V. Tooley stated that Blaeu’s maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley, p 28).
After preparation as a pupil of the great Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe, Blaeu initially concentrated on globe making and separately published maps, including wall maps of the continents. From 1608, he dominated the market for sea atlases and in 1630 produced his terrestrial atlas. These atlases were continued by his sons, culminating in the great Atlas Maior of 1662 in 11 volumes with subsequent editions.
Van der Kogt, Peter. Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici. vol.II, p.537
Condition : Fine Condition. A fine, dark impression. Remains of an old repair at the bottom margin, likely when the map was still in the atlas.
