Description :Uncommon DUTCH text-edition of this influential pocket atlas, published by Johannes Janssonius. The plates were executed by two of Holland's finest engravers, Abraham Goos and Pieter van der Keere. All maps are fine and dark impressions.
The preface mentions that this is the first translation into the Dutch language.

Including one of the earliest available maps of Japan and Korea. The map is closely modelled on the Ortelius-Teixeira outline of 1595 and includes Korea as an elongated island and the three principal islands of Japan.

Including 143 maps : World map, Europe, Africa, Asia, America, North Pole, Iceland, United Kingdom (17), Scandinavia (5), Prussia, Livonia, Russia (2), Lithuania, Eastern Europe (7), Portugal, Spain (6), France (15), Switzerland (5), Low Countries (11), Germany (21), Austria (3), Polonia, Italy (15), Greece (4), Africa (7), Asia (11, including Turkish Empire, Holy Land, Turkey, Cyprus, Persia, Tartary, China, Indonesia, India, Japan, Ceylon), America (5, Mexico, Virginia, Cuba, South America, Strait Magellan).

Janssonius engraved the title page in 1628 and adapting the title for the French, Dutch and German text editions with paste-on title slops. According to Peter van de Krogt the past on title, as here is the case, is often wanting. (v.d.Krogt, Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici, IIIB, page 530.)

Shortly after the publication of the big folio-atlases the need was apparently felt for a smaller-sized atlas, one that would be handier and above all, cheaper. The Atlas Minor was larger in format than other small atlases available at the time, allowing for significantly greater detail and more place names than found in its rivals.

Using the title page of the Latin edition, past-over slip wanting.

v.d.Krogt, Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici, 352:21.
Condition : In contemp. vellum binding. Allegoric title-pages, 13, 763pp., 12pp index with 143 full-page maps. Several beginning and end pages frayed and stained. Binding stained.

ID: 08720
