Since its appearance as an Appendix in 1630, the atlas launched by Willem Blaeu and continued by his son Joan had expanded greatly. But in spite of many new regional maps the world map remained unchanged. For some reason Joan Blaeu's important wall map of 1648 was not immediately adapted by his firm for atlas use.
The New World map prepared by Joan Blaeu for his eleven-volume 'Atlas Maior' in 1662 is, unlike its predecessor, in two hemispheres. Outside the twin hemispheres at the top are celestial figures seated amid clouds: below are representations of the four seasons with each allegorical figure seated in an appropriate chariot quaintly drawn by pairs of beasts and birds. As with all productions by the firm of Blaeu, the engraving and layout and elegance of decoration are all of the highest standard.
A good and dark impression.

Reference: Shirley, World 428.
