Title : Mappa Aestivarum Insularum, alias Bermudas dictarum. . ..
Map maker : WAESBERGE, Johannes Janssonius van. .
Date : Amsterdam, 1676.
Size : 7.4 x 10.1 inches. / 18.8 x 25.7 cm.
Colouring : Colored.

Description :A rare map of the Bermudas, from the last, enlarged, edition of the the Mercator/Cloppenburgh Atlas. From the updated and expanded 1676 edition of one of the greatest miniature atlases of the 17th century, the Mercator-Hondius 'Atlas Minor', published by Johannes Janssonium van Waesberge in Amsterdam in 1676.This map was only included in the 1673 and 1676 editions.
A late History of the Mercator-Hondius Miniature Atlas: In 1630 Johannes Cloppenburg reworked and enlarged the Mercator-Hondius Atlas Minor with a set of newly engraved maps; two other editions followed in 1632 and 1636.
In 1673 the plates appeared again, this time published by Johannes Janssonius's son-in-law, Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge who expanded the run to 183 maps. 1676 saw another Janssonius van Waesberge issue, lengthened yet again to include 207 maps.

Comparing the 1673 and 1676 editions: The 1676 atlas is almost comprehensively revised from the 1673; not only has the complement of maps expanded by 24, but many of the maps from the earlier edition have been substantially revised or changed out for new plates.
The themes of the revision of the 1676 include the addition of two polar maps, a massive update to the Italian content, with more minor updates to British Isles, French, and German maps, and additions of a map of Peru, and some very rare Eastern European maps, among others. Furthermore, as alluded to earlier, the decorative style has shifted toward what one might expect from Dutch maps of the 1670s, with more figurative cartouches and decorative elements like ships in the sea, and fewer generalised stylistic devices like the jagged oceans.

RBH records only one example of the 1673 edition appearing at auction (Parke Bernet 1966). No other copies of the 1676 can be located, either at auction or in institutional collections. This variant edition was unrecorded by Koeman.

Condition : In generally very good condition, light uniform natural browning by age. MS numerals in top left corner.
