Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Guineae Nova Descriptio.
Map maker : HONDIUS, Jodocus..
Date : Amsterdam, 1614.
Size : 8.9 x 12.6 inches. / 22.5 x 32.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :In 1611 Isaac Pontanus, published his “Rerum et urbis Amstelodamensium historia” in Amsterdam. This print comes out of the even rarer Dutch translation "Historische beschrijvinghe der seer wijt beroemde coop-stadt Amsterdam" published in 1614 by Hondius. It is the earliest historical description of Amsterdam, its maritime history and institutions. The fine and very detailed engravings by Hondius are in quality comparable, and even exceeding those by Ortelius, Blaeu, or Visscher. The plan is rare, as is the book by Pontanus. The value of a complete work is such that loose copies of this map are rarely seen. With an elaborated strapwork border depicting the island of S. Thomas. Further embellished with two strapwork cartouches, sea monsters, galleons and a canoe.

Condition : Fine colouring, clear and sharp impression. Folding lines and short upper margin as issued. Some browning and some microscopic tiny holes near center and upper left corner, hardly visible. Verso blanc.

ID: 43247
