Article description

Original antique copper engraving, finely hand colored in outline, when published. Partially heightened in gold. Rare sea map of the Adriatic with the coasts of Italy (north of Otranto) as well as Croatia (La Valona), Montenegro and Albania. The cartouche and the entire coastline were heightened in gold. There are some mileage scales in the bottom left corner. The towns on the coast were marked with small red castles. Pieter Goos was 'one of the best known maritime booksellers of Amsterdam' (Koeman), he published a number of different sea-atlases or pilot books, his work was very much derivative. With his 'Zee-Atlas' he relied heavily on Hendrick Doncker's 'Zee-Atlas' of 1659. Our example of Pieter Goos chart 'Paskaerte Zynde t'Oosterdeel van Oost Indien...' was published in an early composit sea-atlas published probably around 1665/66. This map is printed on excellent thick double paper, it stands out through the highly decorative hand colors and the partially heightening of gold in title cartouches, mileage scales, compass roses or other places. P. Goos is well known for his quality of the engraving, as his father also was a skilled engraver, he always tried to produce visually appealing sea charts.
