COD. ART.: 571/15. Categories: , . Tag: .

Lovely copper engraved maps of Cuba above Hispaniola, with smaller insets of Havana, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Margarita. Usual printer?s defect for this edition at right where border did not print due the damage of the copper. Otherwise very good. From the Mercator Hondius “Atlas Minor” published in Amsterdam in 1648 at Jannsonius with german text on verso. In 1607 Jodocus Hondius published a reduced size version of Mercator’s “Atlas”, itself suitably titled “Atlas Minor”. The maps were copied from those of the great cartographer Mercator of around 1580-90 or were reductions of Hondius’ own maps of 1606. Almost 20 years later Joannes Janssonius commissioned a new set of copperplates to be engraved by Pieter Van Den Keere (Kaerius) and Abraham Goos. These maps were elegantly designed with decorative title cartouches, finely engraved and surprisingly detailed for their dimensions. Koeman “Atlantes Neerlandici” Me203.
