Large and attractive map of the British Isles, with decorative title cartouche on left side and inset map in top right of Orcades Insulae - the Orkney Islands. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) 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 and he was also a member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Sciences. His publications included the "Neuer Atlas Ueber Die Gantze Welt ..." in 1707-. The "Grosser Atlas ..." of 1716- and the "Atlas Novus Terrarum Orbis Imperioa" in c.1720, as well as many others. Johann died in 1724 and was succeeded by his son Johann Christoph who died in 1730. After his death the firm took the name Homann's Heirs and continued thereafter until 1813. Publications with the Homann's Heirs' imprint included the "Grosser Atlas" in 1731, Doppelmays'r "Atlas Coelestis ..." in 1742 and the "Atlas Geographicus Maior ..." in 1753-, amongst others. Throughout this entire period the firm were the leading map publishers in Germany, employing a number of very important cartographers. The distinctive title cartouche features sea creatures, the British Royal coats of arms, banners, spears and other martial implements.
