Description :A copperplate border coloured map of Scandinavia.The earliest folio sized map of the region to be engraved in England. Blome's maps, because of their rarity and importance in the history of English Cartography, are essential items for regional collectors. Richard Blome's cartography flourished in the second half of the seventeenth century.
He produced a great amount of maps, but none were original, and he was often accused of plagiarism although usually he made no attempt to hide his sources. His maps were attractive and quaintly designed, and they still retain their nostalgic look. Blome first began engraving maps for his 'Geographical Description Of The Four Parts Of The World' in 1667. The completed volume was in small folio, and contained 24 maps (plus one duplicate), engraved by Francis Lamb, Thomas Burnford and Wenceslas Hollar. Blome's principal handicap in the production of the atlas was the lack of a domestic mapmaking environment that was comparable with that in Europe. Also, to finance his work, he undertook subscribers, in exchange for a promise to add their coat of arms to certain maps. In later editions, if the renewal fee was not paid, Blome added a different subscribers coat of arms, leading to multiple images on various editions of the same map.

Condition : Restoration in right margin and printed border area. Soiling in right side.
