[Title-Page] Nova Totius Geographica Tellurius Projectio : G.Valk

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Valk's titlepage incorporates a bustling selection of figures; Atlas, Geography, Cybele, Neptune and perhaps History, surrounded by a numerous putti engaged in erstwhile tasks. Above the Angel of Fame with a trumpet in each hand emphasises the importance of this work. The Valk family, with co-publishers, the Schenks, were among the most prolific and best known publishers of eighteenth-century Amsterdam, issuing prints, maps, books and atlases. Their work was invariably finely presented, though primarily reissued from other map-makers' printing plates, including Visscher, De Wit, Jansson and others. However, their work demonstrates the precision and elegance associated with maps and engravings produced in the period, particularly evident in this titlepage.
