Map maker : JANSSONIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, c1650.
Size : 14.8 x 19.9 inches. / 37.6 x 50.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :This decorative map illustrates the geography of the Golden Fleece legend in the Mediterranean, covering from Italy to the Black Sea. The Argonautica is a Greek epic poem that tells the myth of the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts to retrieve the fleece from the mythical land of Colchis.

The map is based on the Ortelius map of the same title. With three insets of Europe, Thessaly (home of the Argonauts), and Hellespont and Propontis (the waterway connecting the Aegean and Black Sea).

Beautifully decorated with the title cartouche and insets, sailing ships, and a compass rose. Engraved and embellished by Petrus Kaerius -- at the age of 74 -- is noted at lower left.

Condition : Very good dark and clear impression. Only a few faint and small areas of soiling. Central fold with creasing and repaired tear to lower part with a few tiny parts of loss. Nicely colored. Attractive example!

ID: 91828
