A beautiful, highly detailed map of southeastern Europe by Nicolas Visscher.

Striking, vibrant, original color. An ornamental title cartouche is in the lower left corner.
Truly outstanding, original color.

The family of Visscher was one of the most distinguished of all seventeenth century cartographical firms, and major figures in the era now considered the Golden Age of Dutch mapmaking. In the late 1600's, a period of great geographical discovery, Amsterdam was the international center of cartography. A number of venerable firms, including those established by Blaeu, Jansson, and Hondius competed for the ever-expanding market for maps and atlases.
Despite the intense competition, with maps such as these Nicolas Visscher set standards for exceptional quality that few other firms were able to equal. Boasting advanced geographical information, fine engraving and coloring, and striking decoration, Visscher's maps are fundamental illustrations of the reasons for Dutch supremacy in mapmaking during the 17th century.
