Condition Rating

In 1611 Isaac Pontanus, published his “Rerum et urbis Amstelodamensium historia” in Amsterdam. This map comes out of the even rarer Dutch translation "Historische beschrijvinghe der seer wijt beroemde coop-stadt Amsterdam" published in 1614 by Hondius. It is the earliest historical description of Amsterdam, its maritime history and institutions. The fine and very detailed engravings by Hondius are in quality comparable, and even exceeding those by Ortelius, Blaeu, or Visscher. This finely engraved map is extremely rare, as is the book by Pontanus. The value of a complete work is such that loose copies of this map are rarely seen. Includes figures of Ethiopia, Guinea, Persia, Turkey, Spice Islands, Java, Sumatra, Malakka and China. ¤
