Title : GALLIA. Le royaume de France..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, 1634.
Size : 15.0 x 19.5 inches. / 38.0 x 49.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :The map was first published with figured borders (1607). When Blaeu needed a folio size map of France for his first atlas (Appendix 1631) he cut off the borders. The same narrow ornamental frame was engraved along both sides and the upper edge of the map. The map content was extended further to the north and numeral indicating degrees of latitude were added.

German text edition map of the Kingdom of France by Willem Blaeu, engraved by the master engraver Josua van den Ende. The map is enhanced by the inclusion of a delightfully large title cartouche in the lower left corner, sailing ships, a compass rose and the English royal coat-of-arms above it, plus the German royal coat-of-arms and a small explanation table to the right margin.
A decorative and desirable map of the whole of France.

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".

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).
