Magnae Britanniae Et Hiberniae Tabulae Die Britannischen Insulen : M. Merian

Matthaus Merian's attractive map of the British Isles is copied from Blaeu's map of 1631 onto a smaller area - Merian's displays the same outline shape, inset of the Orkney's and positioning of the title cartouche. However, there are a number of Germanic flourishes on Merian's map as one might expect - particularly evident in the cursive North Sea lettering and the engraving style of the title lettering. The map was published in J.L.Gottfried's "Neuwe Archontologia Cosmica" and also appeared in other Frankfurt works of the 1640s such as Martin Zeiller's "Topographia". With beautifully engraved cartouche and inset map of the Orkneys, this is a very desirable map.
