below fragment of map BRITANNIA prout divisa fuit temporibus ANGLO-SAXONUM, praesertim durante illorum HEPTARCHIA.
This is the only map of Great-Britain published by Joan Blaeu (1598-1673). The source of this map is a map by John Speed (1552-1629) from 1611. Nevertheless, the importance of this copy is often greater than the original. The vignets on both sides of the map contain 14 miniatures in the style of the most important painters of the time: they portray 14 Saxonian sovereigns and their conversion to christianity. The map was published in several atlases by Blaeu.Incredible a collection of maps and topographical pictures, with additional portraits, pictures of animals and plants, mythological scenes, etc.
The atlas contains land and world maps, colored topographical and historical prints of sieges, victories, town views and plans, sometimes even descripting text and poems in praise have been added
Atlas consists of four volumes each of 100 pages with an index. The total number of pages is around 500 pages in all in different formats and materials. It is built around Blaeu's Atlas Major and atlases by Nicolaes Visscher. It appears to be a contemporary work with the most recent material available: c. 1670 - 1690. The material varies from topographical maps, news prints, prints of sieges, captures, town plans, to pleasure gardens and political issues (many by the famous Romeyn de Hooghe). No mythological scenes, caricatures, portraits, animals or plants have been included. The Atlas gives a wide spectrum on the world, all continents are represented but not into detail. Some maps and print have to be folded out, some maps have been glued in later while there are also some series of prints with two images on a sheet of paper..
Each volume contains an average of a hundred to a hundred and fifty leaves, on to and between which some large single or several smaller prints have been mounted, and into which some complete books and extracts from others have been inserted in a carefully designed sequence. The whole form a comprehensive display of the Low Countries, comprising the United Provinces (roughly equivalent to the northern Netherlands), the Spanish/Austrian Netherlands (roughly equivalent to the modern Belgium plus French Flanders), and Luxembourg, from their earliest beginnings up to the compilers' own time, with additions by later owners right into the nineteenth century.
Both topographical and historical material is used, wether factual, allegorical, heraldic, or in any combination of these, enlivened with portraits of important inhabitants of individual localities, pictures of archeological finds, of a scientific instrument here, a typical or unusual industry there.
for the purpose of non-commercial academic and semi-academic research and study.
