Magnae Britanniae Et Hiberniae Nova Descriptio : J. Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive, finely engraved and interesting map. Jan Jansson's copied the outlines of earlier Dutch publications but was designed on a larger scale and is consequently more detailed. With an inset detail of the Orkneys Islands, the Royal Coat of Arms and elegant titlepiece the map has sea areas with sailing ships and flourishes to the lettering. The map appeared in editions of Jansson English county atlas and was copied by other Dutch cartographic publishers throughout the remainder of the century. Rodney Shirley, in the definitive reference to such maps comments "the paper used by Jansson has tended to discolour with age and the ink to offset ....". This example is on cleaned fresh paper with some offset and light text see-through but, with expert hand-colouring, is nevertheless very decorative.
