World & Continent Sets 

BLAEU, Johannes. [Set of World & Four Continents from the 'Atlas Major']
Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula; Americé nova Tabula; Asia noviter delineata; Africé nova descriptio; Europa recens descripta. Amsterdam, 1662. Original colour. Five plates, each c.410 x 540mm.
A fine set of five maps from the most expensive book published in the 17th century, an eleven-volume atlas containing 593 hand-coloured maps. For this edition Johannes Blaeu replaced the world map engraved by his father in 1606 and used in Blaeu atlases since 1630 with a new double hemisphere map, the only Blaeu atlas map to show California as an island. The highly decorative borders have two cartographers and allegorical figures of the known planets along the top and the Four Seasons underneath. Shirley writes that 'the engraving and layout and elegance of decoration are of the highest standard. The map is invariably printed on thick paper of quality and often superbly hand coloured.'. Each of the continents has lateral borders of native dress and nine city prospects along the top. KOEMAN: Bl 56; SHIRLEY: World 255; BURDEN: 189; WALTER: 25; NORWICH: 32; BORRI: 126.

 World Maps 

Anonymous. [Medieval Woodblock World Map]
[Untitled cicular world map from a woodblock of 1491.] From "La Mer des Hystoires", Paris, Nicolas Couteau, 1543. Woodblock, 2 sheets joined. 300 mm diameter Very strong and even impression. A lovely example.
This is the 1491 Lyons block of the world map, published in " La Mer des Hystoires" Chronicle in Paris, in 1543. Shirley mentions that examples of the Lyons block appeared in later Paris editions of the Mer des Hystoires. The encyclopedic world history based on medieval theology, "Rudimentum Novitiorum", became better known through French translations under the title "La Mer des Hystoires". This famous publication contained the first detailed printed maps ever produced . Two separate blocks of the world map were made for French issues of the Mer de Hystoires, the first in Paris in 1488 and the second in Lyons in 1491. "Whereas the earlier La Mer des Hystoires map of 1488 remained close to the Rudimentum Novitiorum prototype, this second (and reduced) derivation of 1491 betrays the work of a thinking individual" ---- Campbell. A number of mistakes have been corrected, and the text is much clearer than in the previous editions. Shirley, The Mapping of the World, item 17
[Ref: 10204]    £16,500.00 ($23,925 • €19,470 rates)


SCHEDEL, D. Hartmann. [The World as known to Columbus]
[World.] Nuremberg, Anton Kolberger, 1493, Latin text edition. Woodcut, printed area 370 x 520mm.
The famous world map from the 'Nuremberg Chronicle'. Published a matter of months after Columbus' return to Spain after his first voyage to the New World, it includes nothing of his discoveries. Instead it takes a retrospective view, depicting the three sons of Noah in the borders, includes the mythical island of Taprobana and has seven vignettes of mythological creatures, taken from the works of Herodotus, Solinus and Pliny, down the left side. These include figures with six arms, four eyes or a bird-neck, and a centaur. A further 14 are on verso, with text describing which parts of the world they inhabit. SHIRLEY: 19.
