        • NUEVO ATLAS DE LOS REYNOS DE ESCOCIA E YRLANDA.
          Apr. 27, 2024

          NUEVO ATLAS DE LOS REYNOS DE ESCOCIA E YRLANDA.

          Est: €4,000 - €5,000

          Large folio: [12 incl. engr. title]-232, 82-[1] pp.; 55 maps almost all pasted on, which is characteristic for the edition (added strip of paper with text on p. 18/Ireland, the maps are generally in good condition, the text lvs on the other hand are occ. heavily browned). - Rare second Spanish edition (1st Sp. ed. 1659) of Blaeu's Atlas of Scotland with the Spanish text completely reset and the new text sheets laid over already printed ones, making the maps in this atlas feel doubly thick. In fact, the fire that ruined Blaeu's printing house in 1672, destroyed all copperplates of the maps from Scotland and Ireland. The remaining sheets were available only in limited quantities and so stock from other editions was used to make new complete atlases. This edition has on the imprint the date 1654, when Blaeu obtained the privileges to publish, then started working continuously but slowly. It also includes the dedication to Gaspar de Bracamonte, dated 18 July 1658. The fact that most maps are pasted on implies that the atlas was produced after 1672. The maps of Scotland were engraved after Timothy Pont's manuscript survey maps and augmented with information by Robert Gordon. - Ref. Van der Krogt II [2:442Q].

          Jan. 27, 2024

          BLAEU'S THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM (PART FIVE [SCOTLAND & IRELAND] ONLY)

          Est: $20,000 - $40,000

          BLAEU, Joan Guilliemius (1596-1673). Theatrum Orbis Terrarum [Nuevo Atlas de los Reynos de Escocia e Yrlanda] (Scotland and Ireland): Volume V. Amsterdam: J. Blaeu, 1659. Folio, engraved title-page, 55 maps including 6 maps of Ireland, hand-colored and heightened in gilt with the highest level of gold-leaf color we have ever seen. Original vellum gilt, ties lacking, covers soiled and spine chipped with sections lacking, two maps with some small tears to central fold, several maps lightly browned or spotted, some scattered foxing to final leaves. Provenance: Colonel Hugh Montgomerie, 12th Earl of Eglinton, KT (1739 -1819), his bookplate on the front pastdown. Gift inscription on the title-page in ink manuscript: "To the Earl of Eglinton from his obliged humble Servant/ Pryce L. Gordon/ 1801." Spanish edition of the fifth part, focusing on Scotland and Ireland, of Blaeu’s Theatrum, in a fine contemporary binding and with nuanced hand-color heightened lavishly gilt. Joan Blaeu (1596–1673) was, along with his father Willem and brother Cornelis, the great Dutch cartographer of the Golden Age. He was made official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company after his father’s death. The joint family project was the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (first issued 1635), and after the death of the patriarch in 1638 the Theatrum was gradually expanded into the so-called Atlas Maior (Greater Atlas). The present item is the Spanish edition (there were editions in Latin, French, Dutch and German) of the England volume. Blaeu’s mastery of engraving and mise-en-page nevertheless give the work power and beauty. Pryce Lockhart Gordon (or Pryse, 1762-1845) was a close friend of Byron's who traveled with him on the Continent. Gordon and Montgomerie (also Montgomery), having acceded to the Earldom in 1796, traveled through Italy 1797-1801; thus the present atlas was likely bought there and given as a gift during their travels. The two would travel together again, going to Sicily in 1811.

          Liuzhou, China: Blaeu, pub. 1662 - Map of Liuzhou or Guangxi, China (Quangsi sinarum imperii provincia decimatertia)

          Est: $1,500 - $2,500

          This remarkable map with original hand-coloring is from Joan Blaeu's Novus Atlas Sinensis a Martino Martinio. The work was published by Joan Blaeu in 1655. European powers were exploring much of the Far East in the 1600s. Martino Martini, a Jesuit missionary, was at the forefront of these interactions. The missionaries travels and observations helped inform Europe of the people and lands of China and the Far East. Martini's mapping was the first advancement of knowledge of the region in half a century influencing trade, diplomacy, and cultural exchange. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prominent Dutch geographer and publisher that studied under Tycho Brahe. Willem died in 1638. He had two sons, Cornelis (1610-1648) and Joan (1596-1673). Joan trained as a lawyer, but joined his father’s business rather than practice law. After his father’s death, the brothers took over their father’s shop and Joan took on his work as hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company. Later in life, Joan would modify and greatly expand his father’s Atlas novus, eventually releasing his masterpiece, the Atlas maior, between 1662 and 1672. Martino Martini (1614-1661) was a Jesuit Missionary born in Trient in South Tirol, Italy. He travelled to China in 1642 where he gathered maps of various Chinese provinces that helped present the cartography of the Far East. He also wrote a history of the Tartars war against China.

          Est: $1,500 - $2,500

          This remarkable map with original hand-coloring is from Joan Blaeu's Novus Atlas Sinensis a Martino Martinio. The work was published by Joan Blaeu in 1655. European powers were exploring much of the Far East in the 1600s. Martino Martini, a Jesuit missionary, was at the forefront of these interactions. The missionaries travels and observations helped inform Europe of the people and lands of China and the Far East. Martini's mapping was the first advancement of knowledge of the region in half a century influencing trade, diplomacy, and cultural exchange. Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prominent Dutch geographer and publisher that studied under Tycho Brahe. Willem died in 1638. He had two sons, Cornelis (1610-1648) and Joan (1596-1673). Joan trained as a lawyer, but joined his father’s business rather than practice law. After his father’s death, the brothers took over their father’s shop and Joan took on his work as hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company. Later in life, Joan would modify and greatly expand his father’s Atlas novus, eventually releasing his masterpiece, the Atlas maior, between 1662 and 1672. Martino Martini (1614-1661) was a Jesuit Missionary born in Trient in South Tirol, Italy. He travelled to China in 1642 where he gathered maps of various Chinese provinces that helped present the cartography of the Far East. He also wrote a history of the Tartars war against China.
