From a talented and noted Dutch mapmaking family, Willem Janszoon Blaeu (whom also went by Guilielmus Blaeu) was born at Alkmaar, the Netherlands in 1571 and trained in astronomy and the sciences by Tycho Brahe, the celebrated Danish astronomer. In 1599, Blaeu began to make globes and instruments, however, it was not long before the business expanded to include publishing maps, topographical works and books of sea charts.
His great skill was recognized by the Dutch East India Company and in 1630 he was appointed their official cartographer, giving him access to the most accurate geographical information available. During his prodigious career Blaeu was to produce several atlases including the Atlantis Appendix of 1630. Five years later, the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued.

Condition : Quarter inch and inch long tears, both to right of the central crease on the bottom edge repaired. Evidence of previous repair/discoloration to bottom three inches of central crease. Light foxing and staining throughout margin areas.
