[Title-Page] Atlas Novus Terrarum Orbis Imperia Regna Et Status : J.B.Homann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Johann Baptist Homann started his career in Amsterdam as an apprentice with the Danckerts family before returning to Nuremberg to establish himself in business in 1702. The firm quickly became the principal geographical publishers in Germany and in 1715 Homann was appointed Geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. This titlepage epitomizes the bold style that is also very much evident in Homann's maps. Atlas and Hercules are standing on top of a terrestrial globe supporting the heavens and the milky way above. Beneath, Neptune. Mercury, Cybele and a selection of other gods and goddesses adorn the foreground.
