A striking, rare map with a cartouche dedicated to Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna. The 'Atlas Maior' is the epitome of decades of achievement by the famous Blaeu family.
Published in five languages (Latin, Dutch, French, German and Spanish) from 1662, it grew to eleven or twelve volumes in its most comprehensive editions, and was as Koeman observes a "costly atlas . . . Exclusively designed for those members of the patriciate who could command both the material and intellectual resources that were needed to buy and appreciate it".

Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571–1638), was a Dutch cartographer, atlas maker and publisher. He was one of the notable representatives of the “Netherlandish / Dutch School of Cartography” in its golden age (the 16th and 17th centuries). He had two sons, Johannes and Cornelis Blaeu, who continued their father's mapmaking and publishing business after his death.
