The finest Dutch map publishers were the Blaeu family, and they hold the title of mapmakers supreme for any period of cartographical history.
Willlem Jansz. Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founder of the Blaeu publishing house and established the fine reputation of Blaeu maps. Originally specializing in sea charts and pilot guides, he published his first atlas, Atlas Appendix in 1630.
In 1634 he published the first edition of a new world atlas. On his death he was succeeded by his son Joan (1596-1673). Joan produced a number of fine town books of the Netherlands and Italy, works without parallel. The 'Atlas Major', often found in the loveliest contemporary colour, finally incorporated over 650 of the most up to date and finely engraved maps available.
Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing. ¤

Condition : Marginal discolouration due to water staining. Professional restoration of a few marginal splits along vertical folds. Good condition.
