Title : Artesia Comitatus. Artois..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, 1634.
Size : 15.0 x 19.7 inches. / 38.0 x 50.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Very decorative map of north-western part of France.
Beautiful large decorative title cartouche fill the upper right corner, while the right margin has a sea monster, sail boat and a wind rose and radiating rhumb lines for embellishment.
As Willem Blaeu died in 1638 most of his maps are actually published by his son Joan, however, this map 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".

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).
