A good example of a finely engraved and attractively coloured map from Willem and Joan Blaeu's "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" - one of the finest atlas productions of the seventeenth century. The Blaeu family, from about 1630, were regarded as the finest map and atlas publishers until around 1670 when the family warehouse burnt down. The maps are known for their fine presentation, detail and elaborate decorative cartouches and vignettes. These two detailed maps on one plate show two sections of the Aisne region in Picardy in northern France. Within these regions, towns shown include, on the left-hand plate, Saint-Quentin, Chatelet and Han. On the right-hand plate, there is La Capelle, Marle and Vervins. The cartouches are decorated and there is a key indicating the type and size of the buildings and settlements in the regions. Latin text to verso.
