Lagenia Anglis Leinster : J. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The south east of Ireland, including Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford and Kilkenny. Latin text to verso. Closely based on John Speed's publication of 1612. "The finest Dutch map publishers were the Blaeu family, and they hold the title of mapmakers supreme for any period of cartographical history." (R. Baynton-Williams, Investing in Maps). 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 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). An attractive example on slightly age-toned paper.
