Middle-sexia : G. Blaeu

A well engraved and detailed map of the county of Middlesex, now part of the Greater London area. The River Thames is featured, in its role as the boundary with Surrey. Also shown but not always named, are the Thames tributaries in Middlesex- the rivers Lea, Fleet, Westbourne, Brent, Crane and Colne. "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. In 1634 he commenced publication of the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" or "Novus Atlas" and on his death he was succeeded by his son Johannes (1596-1673). Johannes continuously enlarged and updated the "Theatrum" up to 1658, including the addition of a separate volume devoted to England and Wales. Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing. The county maps have decorative title cartouches and often depict the coats of arms of those families with important county links. This example laid on archival backing but very attractive.
