Description :Johannis van Keulen was the founding member of a family of mapmakers that created a veritable cartographic dynasty in 17th-century Amsterdam, becoming the chief publisher of sea atlases and nautical works during the era. This finely engraved and important chart of the Carolina coast was published in van Keulen's monumental sea atlas, the Zee-Fakkel, considered by many to be the culmination in the development of Dutch pilot books.

The Zee-Fakkel was published in five parts from 1684 to 1689. Part IV of the atlas was devoted to America, and in its separately published form, was the first sea atlas specifically devoted to the New World.
It contained some of the most important 17th-century sea charts of American areas, including this one, which has a linear clarity and crystalline simplicity of presentation that are characteristic of the best and most beautiful of Dutch sea charts.

The Zee-Fakkel was the largest and most complete sea atlas to be published to date. As with preceding Dutch atlases of the type, it was designed for the international market, for the publication of hydrographic knowledge throughout the 17th century was predominantly a Dutch affair, under the undisputed leadership of Amsterdam.
The Zee-Fakkel marked the climax of this development, and the house of van Keulen, active without a break from 1678 to 1885, was the largest unofficial hydrographic office in the world.
Condition : Very good condition.
