A distinctive and finely engraved map of the British Isles from the renowned Dutch publishing house of the Blaeu family. Although the copperplate from which this map was printed was first cut about 1625 by Jodocus Hondius, the map, with some alterations appeared in Blaeu atlases from 1630 and for the next 50 years – a tribute to the quality of "the finest map publishing house" of the "golden age of Dutch cartography". The British Isles are clearly defined and well detailed with an inset map of the Orkney Isles at top right. The title is set in an elegant decorative surround while the mileage scale, sea monster, sailing ships and compass rose enhance the artistic design. This attractive example, with German text on the reverse appeared in the 1634 edition of "Novus Atlas ...". A good example in its original, as printed, black and white state.
