Zee Caerte vande Sondt..van Denemarcke..
Selling price: $2350
It was published by Dutch cartographer L.J. Waghenaer in his 1586 "Spieghel Der Zeevaerdt," which was the first detailed chart book of western European coasts.
It was the first printed chart to cover that area of coastline. In addition to being historically significant, it is also extremely decorative. The water off shore contains sea monsters and sailing ships, and an intricate compass rose is in the middle of the image. On land, trees, fields and farm buildings can be seen. The chart title and scale of distances are surrounded by intricate designs.
Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer (c. 1533-1606), a navigating officer from Enkhuizen, completed the 23 charts for the first part of his nautical atlas Spieghel der zeevaerdt some time around 1580. Indications have never been found that he copied the charts from existing sources, so it is assumed that he made a number of them based on his own observations as a navigating officer and the rest based on his vast practical navigation experience.
Until well into the seventeenth century, it was an indispensable aid for Dutch, French, German and English seafarers and also for their Spanish and Portuguese colleagues who navigated along European coasts.
The plate is engraved by Johannes Deutecom, who transformed the relatively simple originals to the most attractive charts of the period.
