Article description

Article description

Original antique copper engraving, decorative hand colored in outline when published. One of the most decorative maps of the Balearic Islands published by a Dutch cartographer. This old map depicts the Balearic Islands Ibiza, Majorca and Minorca. The map is ornated two coat of arms, an elegant title cartouche, sea monsters, ships and a cartouche with a mileage scale in the lower right corner. Overall in very good condition. Marginal water stains, not affecting the image of the map and some light staining in the wide margins. Joan Blaeu  (23 September 1596 – 21 December 1673; also called Johannes Blaeu) was a Dutch cartographer born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu. In 1620, Blaeu became a doctor of law but he joined in the work of his father. In 1635, they published the Atlas Novus (full title: Theatrum orbis terrarum, sive, Atlas novus) in two volumes. Joan and his brother Cornelius took over the studio after their father died in 1638. Blaeu became the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company like his father before him. Blaeu died in Amsterdam on 21 December 1673. He is buried in the Amsterdam Westerkerk. (Wikipedia)
