Description :FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF THIS MAP. From the 1634 edition of Blaeu's Atlas Novus, the first edition of this work.
Important map of Hesse in Germany, centered on the town of Kassel (Cadssel) and surrounds. Physical features are well engraved and highlighted With a very decorative title cartouche.
Willem Janszoon, or Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) as he is more commonly known, was one of the most noted Dutch cartographers and map publisher of the 17th century.
R.V. Tooley stated that Blaeu's maps are "esteemed by collectors for their decorative quality, historical importance, and as the highest expression of Dutch cartographic art during the period of its supremacy" (Tooley).

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).
