Title : Rhenus Fluviourum Europae celeberrimus cum Mosa, mosella, et reliquis, in illum se exonerantibus, fluminibus.
Map maker : BLAEU, Willem Jansz..
Date : Amsterdam, 1635.
Size : 16.1 x 37.0 inches. / 41.0 x 94.0 cm.
Colouring : Original Color

Description :An impressive, large map that shows the entire course of the Rhine River from its beginning in Switzerland until its end in the North Sea in The Netherlands. The map also shows the Rhine's tributaries and surrounding lands in Switzerland, France, Germany, and The Netherlands. West is at the top of the map.

An elaborate title cartouche in the bottom right of map allegorically depicts the river (and its tributaries) as its runs through the bounty of Europe. Nine crests (coats of arms) dominate the upper part of the map, representing the various territories through which the river runs: Switzerland, Alsace, the Rhineland Palatinate, the Archbishopric of Cologne, Kleve, Gelderland, Utrecht, and Holland. The map is dedicated to Andries Bicker by Blaeu as noted in the upper right corner.

This map was published by the Blaeus for their atlases from 1635 to the 1672 Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior. The verso of this map is blank so it is difficult to precisely date this map.

This is one of the largest maps produced by the Blaeus and was printed from two plates which were joined at the time of publication.
Condition : Good Condition overall, especially considering that most maps of this size have various paper issues. Professional repair to a separation entering map to the bottom right of the centerfold from the margin.
