Description :FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF THIS MAP. Very decorative map of Poland embellished with two very attractive cartouches and two coats of arms surmounted by cherubs and female figures.

As Willem Blaeu died in 1638 most of his maps are actually published by his son Joan. This maps carries his (engraved) signature
From early on Willem Jansz. Blaeu aimed of publishing an atlas to compete with the Hondius-Jansson Atlas. By 1630, he had published at least 17 folio size maps. Blaeu was able to realize his plan soon after he had acquired the copper plates of the atlas maps by Jodocus Hondius. The "Appendix followed in 1630.
In 1635 he finally realized a "international edition" of a world atlas, the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum".
This map highlights the many rivers and tributaries that run through the region.

From an incomplete example of the 1634 German text edition of Blaeu's "Novus Atlas", previously owned by Johann Christoph Gesen (1639), Johann Rudolph von Metzradt (1651), Friedrich August II, King of Saxony (1797-1854).
P. van der Krogt mentions two variants for the German 1634 text edition and only two examples containing proof states (Bad Münstereifel and Gotha).
