Description :A typically detailed and finely engraved map of Switzerland by Blaeu, including the cities of Basel, Zürich, Bern, Lucerne, Fribourg, etc. The map is embellished with two decorative cartouches in opposite corners, and with two human figures.

Willem Janszoon (or Jansz.) Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founder of a large publishing firm that became famous in the field of cartography under the name Blaeu.
The French 1638 edition of the Theatrum was the last atlas published in Willem's life time. After his death in 1638, Willem Jansz was succeeded by his sons Joan (1598/1599-1673) and Cornelius (ca. 1610-1642) Blaeu, who continued and expanded their father’s ambitious plans. Joan continued the business alone after Cornelis’s death in 1644, and established his own reputation as a great mapmaker. The successive acquisition of the copper plates of competing globe making firms in Amsterdam (those of the Hondius family in particular) gave Joan a monopoly in by the middle of the seventeenth century.
Condition : In good condition. Good impression. French text to verso.
