Click image to zoom old map image



Title : Leodiensis Dioecesis..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, 1634.
Size : 15.0 x 19.7 inches. / 38.0 x 50.0 cm.
Colouring : Fine colouring.

Description :This is a rare proof state of Blaeu's map of Leige. It is only known in the relatively scarce Novus Atlas by Willem Blaeu, published in Amsterdam in 1634-1635. The proof state does not contain the coat of arms above the title cartouche. This map was quickly replaced in the Latin edition of 1635 and subsequent editions of the coat of arms. There may be other, minor differences between this proof state and the subsequent states of the map. The map shows the historic city of Leige at the center, with Antwerp at the top right (right on this map is north). Ardennes Forest is at the top left. The map has a decorative title cartouche at the bottom left, and a mileage scale at the top center.

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).
Condition : Fine Condition. A fine, dark impression. Soft printer's cease on left side.
