De Zee Custen Tußchen Douere En Orfordts Neße ... : L. J. Waghenaer

A strong impression of this important and scarce early chart of the English coast, oriented with north to the right, and centred around the Thames Estuary with the adjacent coasts from Deal in Kent to Ipswich and Orford Ness in Suffolk. This is from a Latin text edition of Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer's important "Spieghel der Zeevaerdt", the first printed pilot-book of the northern and western European coasts with charts. At the top edge there is an annotated cross section of the coastline depicted, ports, parks and houses appear in profile views and, in the sea , ships, monsters, and a decorative compass rose appear. This state, engraved by Joannes Doetechum, has Latin text to verso. Restoration to upper right corner not affecting engraved area, otherwise a fine example.
