Title : Het eerste deel van het Brandende Veen. . ..
Map maker : ROGGEVEEN, A..
Date : Amsterdam, Pieter Goos, n.d. 1675 Amsterdam, Pieter Goos, n.d. 1675.
Size : 20.9 x 12.2 inches. / 53.0 x 31.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :The text body of the extremely rare sea atlas by Arent Roggeveen, describing the American waters. The text pages have numerous figures of coastlines, plans, small town views or maps, etcetera. The text with detailed descriptions of Florida, the American East coast and numerous Caribbean Islands. All vignettes, the small maps and plans in the text, and the coastal profiles in fine contemporary hand colouring.
Unbound, but all leaves in very good condition with just some slight age toning.
Despite the missing pages, still a fascinating original source. The one single page map that is present, is the map of the Island Santa Catalina, near the coasts of Panama and Nicaragua. The famous pirate Henry Morgan used Santa Catalina as his base during the years 1670-1689. It was from Santa Catalina that Henry Morgan prepared and started his famous attack on San Lorenzo, followed by the taking of Panama City. Roggeveen mentions that pirates and privateers frequently use the Island, which is probably why he added this map of the otherwise insignificant Island in his Atlas.

The complete title of the work is Roggeveen, Arent: Het eerste deel van het Brandende Veen: verlichtende alle de vaste kusten ende eylanden van geheel West-Indien, beginnende van de linie aequinoctiael, ofte Rio Amasones: gaende noor-waert door het Canael van Bahama, ende eyndigende aan het noordelijckste van Nieu-Nederland, voortgaande benoorden Tarra-Neuf, Als meede alle de Caribes en West-Indise eylanden (..)
Roggeveen, worked as a cartographer for the Dutch West- and East Indies companies.

In the mid 1660?s, Roggeveen embarked upon compiling a series of large scale-charts of the North American coastline and West Indies. Many of his charts are based upon the earlier large-scale work of Hessel Gerritsz and Joan Vingboons - both cartographers for the Dutch East and West India Companies, but Roggeveen?s work was the first to show the whole coastline of North America and the Caribbean. He called this pilot "Het Brandende Veen" or "The burning Fen", a pun on his name as "veen" means "fen" and a heap of burning fen represents a fire on the coast to guide or warn ships.

Roggeveen's charts are now extraordinarily rare and are seldom seen on the market today. This is partly due to the inherent low survival rates of sea charts and pilots used aboard ships, and partly because Roggeveen?s publisher, Pieter Goos of Amsterdam, died in the year of the books publication (1675) and Arent Roggenveen died in 1679. The so-called "Burning Fen" is the most interesting of all the maritime works produced by Pieter Goos (Koeman).
Reference: Koeman Rog 1.
