Description :Small map of Malta, surrounded by text in Dutch. Embellished with a sea monster and a title cartouche.
Nicolaes de Clerck (de Klerc) was active as engraver and publisher in Delft from 1599-1621.
Included in the rare book : Wereld Spiegel, waer in vertoontword de Beschryvinge der Rijken Staten, ende vorstendommen des gantsen Aerdbodems? which was a Dutch translation of "Les estats, empires et principautez de monde" by Pierre Davity.
The map is engraved by Jodocus Hondius before 1616 and first published in Petrus Bertius' revised pocket atlas Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum Libri septem.. edition of 1616.
According to Peter van der Krogt in Atlantes Neerlandici, volume IIIA, page 442, the plates were used to illustrate some other books with maps, such as Paullus Merula's Cosmographia Generalis, printed in Leiden by Isaac Elsevier and in 1621 for the Wereld Spiegel.Cloppenburch probably had borrowed the plates, since in the 1630s they were in the possession of Willem Jansz. Blaeu, who probably acquired them along with the plates for Jodocus Hondius Jr.'s Appendix. Blaeu used the plates again for the Merula edition of 1635/36. Joan Blaeu used these plates to produce an Atlas Minor without text.
RARE.

Condition : Page slightly age-toned. Marginal spot in the upper left corner of the sheet. Size of paper : 31x 19cm.
