Article description

Article description

Original antique copper engraving, uncolored as published. Decorative early sea chart, orientated with the North to the left, published in the 'Zea Fakkel' by Joannes van Keulen around 1684. The map shows the West coast of Africa from Larache in the north towards Capo Cantin in the south, the coastline of the Maroccan coast is pretty detailed engraved showing tiny islands, bays, depths in the water and sand banks. Ornated in the upper right corner with an inset map showing the bay next to 'Nieu Sallee' with the mouth of the river Rio Rebata. In the lower left corner with a highly decorative title cartouche with allegories to the sea and to the earth, as well a mileage scale with Dutch, Spanish and English miles. Johannes van Keulen (1654 in Deventer – 1715 in Amsterdam) was a 17th-century Dutch cartographer. He published the influential nautical atlas the Zee-Atlas and the pilot guide Zee-Fakkel (meaning Sea-Torch in English). In 1678 Johannes van Keulen established himself in Amsterdam and in 1680 he obtained a patent from the States of Holland and West Friesland allowing him to print and publish maritime atlases and shipping guides. These were books of maps and descriptions of itineraries, used by helmsmen for safe navigation. The patent was a kind of protection against illegal copying of produced books and charts. This was especially important for the atlases which were made with extensive initial costs. Van Keulen named his firm 'In de Gekroonde Lootsman' ('In the Crowned Pilot'). Soon Van Keulen struck a deal with cartographer Claes Jansz. Vooght. From 1681 onwards the Nieuwe Lichtende Zee-Fakkel appeared, a five-volume atlas for which Vooght compiled the maps[1] and which was illustrated by Jan Luyken. The five volume Zee-Fakkel made Johannes van Keulen famous. The Zee-Fakkel was published in 5 volumes between 1681 and 1684 containing over 130 new charts. (Wikipedia)
