Finely engraved map with a very decorative title cartouche adorned with a chain of fruits.
A ship is sailing on the Baltic near a wind rose. In the left-hand corner a local coat of arms. The larger cities of Rostock, Scwerin, Neubrandenburg, Wismar and Gustrow are shown.

Engraved by Salomon Rogiers for Jodocus Hondius II, at his death in August 1629 this map was, among 39 other copper plates, purchased by Willem Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint. Blaeu then immediately published 34 of them as part of his first atlas.

From an incomplete example of the 1634 German text edition of Blaeu's "Novus Atlas", previously owned by Johann Christoph Gesen (1639), Johann Rudolph von Metzradt (1651), Friedrich August II, King of Saxony (1797-1854).
P. van der Krogt mentions two variants for the German 1634 text edition and only two examples containing proof states (Bad Münstereifel and Gotha).

Dare to go in Black. All early maps are printed in black and white and many were kept that way for a long time. A black and white map in an early and strong impression is a rarity now-a-days with so many being recently coloured up !
