Cornubia Sive Cornwallia : J. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of this sought-after and elegant map of all Cornwall from the great Dutch map and atlas publishing house of the Blaeu family. This well known and finely engraved map is well detailed with a series of well-executed coats of arms, two of which are finely gilded - the dignitaries represented include Piers Gaveston, Earl of Cornwall and John of Eltham, also Earl of Cornwall, however three devices remain blank; suggesting intended subscribers could not be found, or perhaps, would not pay up. The title cartouche is decorated with a catch of seafish and a grotesque, and ships in full sail engage off the Cornish coast. This example has some central restoration, with no loss of detail and very faint colour-run around the coats of arms. Nevertheless a very decorative map.
