Willem Blaeu published this map in 1608 as a wall map with figured borders. When later, in 1630 he needed a general map of the Netherlands for his first atlas, the Appendix, the decoration in the borders was sacrificed: the borders of the copper plates were cut off. One of the most decorative maps of present Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
Still with the signature of "Willem Janszoon op't Water in de Vergulde Zonnewyzer."

Superb map with infinite detail and finely engraved. Wonderfully augmented by the inclusion of some glorious decorative embellishments.
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).
