FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF THIS MAP. From the 1634 edition of Blaeu's Atlas Novus, the first edition of this work and the very first time Blaeu printed this map. RARE.
A large, detailed and handsome map of Alsace based on the work of Gerard Mercator. Covers the region including the Rhine from Granville to Sarburg in the north and from Basel to Landaw in the south. Decorated with a fine figural cartouche and two scales of miles. Physical features are well delineated. Two sheets conjoined together.
From early on Willem Jansz. Blaeu aimed of publishing an atlas to compete with the Hondius-Jansson Atlas.
By 1630, he had published at least 17 folio size maps. Blaeu was able to realize his plan soon after he had acquired the copper plates of the atlas maps by Jodocus Hondius. The "Appendix followed in 1630.
In 1635 he finally realized a "international edition" of a world atlas, the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum".

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).
