Title : Paskaart van de Zee-kusten van Italie, Dalmatie, Sicilia, Grecia, Morea Malte en Candie. . ..
Map maker : LOOTS, Johannes.
Date : Amsterdam, circa 1700.
Size : 40.9 x 23.6 inches. / 104.0 x 60.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Exceptionally rare, very large nautical chart of the Mediterranean Sea, printed from two plates. We were not able to locate other specimen of this map. It depicts the coastlines of large part of the Mediterranean Sea, from Gibraltar till the island of Creta, and also a small portion of the Atlantic in the approaches to Gibraltar. Very accurate description of the sea locations and, in the landside, detailed description of 20 important ports. In the lower left corner a cartouche in French: "Nouvelle Carte marine de la partie d'Orient et d'occident de la Mediterranee..." by Berthelot, professor in Marseille.

Only a few of Johannes Loots'sea charts have survived to modern times, mostly because they were used by mariners at sea.
Johannes Loots (1665 - 1726) was active from 1693 until his death in 1726. Loots began his career by Hendrick Doncker. Several charts from this maker were offered separately.

In 1707, Loots sold 100 charts to Gerard Van Keulen. In 1707, Loots seems to have purchased the plates of Jacob Robijn.
Loots' charts are extremely rare on the market. According to the information in raremaps.com, just 5 charts of Loots were offered for sale at auction or in catalogues in the last 30 years or so.
Berthelot was a professor for hydrography in Marseille and published, in 1691 an "Abrégé de la Navigation, contenant ce qui est nécessaire de savoir de la théorie de cet Art, pour conduire les Bâtiments sur la Méditerranée; avec des explications touchant les Erreurs attachées à la routine des Navigateurs".
An unique, very important and very decorative, large sea chart. ¤

Condition : Different professional repairs, at the margins as well as in the printed area, including small replaces printed areas, carefully re-drawn. Paper slightly age toned.
