Description :A finely engraved map from the most important Dutch map publishers of the 17th century. The plate was originally engraved for Jodocus Hondius II and published with figured borders, at his death in August 1629 this map was, among other copper plates, purchased by Willem Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint. The map was for a short time (1629-1631) on sale as a separate sheet. Blaeu also published the map as part of his first atlas. (Appendix 1630).
In 1631 the figured borders are cut off and included in atlases from 1631 until 1648.

The standard map of the British Isles in Blaeu's atlases. Inset map of the Orkney Islands, a decorative title cartouche and scale of miles, compass rose, sea galleons and a sea monster patrol the seas.

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).
