This attractive map shows the coastline and islands of western Argyll, from Loch Crinan to Loch Lyon. It has a decorative title piece and dedication to James Balfour with his elaborate coats of arms above. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founder of the Blaeu publishing house and established the fine reputation of Blaeu maps. Originally specialising in sea charts, he published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix in 1630, based around the printing plates he acquired from Jodocus Hondius Jr's stock. In 1634 he commenced publication of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum or Novus Atlas. On his death he was succeeded by his son Johannes (1596-1673) who "aimed at the full description of heaven, earth and water" (Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici). Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing.
