Les Environs De L'Estang De Longpendu ... Charolois : W. & J. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

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. This detailed map shows the area of Charolois, the capital of the region of Charolles. Both the scale and cartouche are decorated with cherubs ad men with cartographic equipment. Latin text to verso.
