Article description

Original antique copper engraving, uncolored as published. Published in ,de Nieuwen brugh' in Amsterdam. A very rare sea chart of the Baltic sea with the coastline from Bardt, Stralsund, Greifwalde and Wolgast in a large scale. The map features the island of Rügen and the neighbourging island Usedom. A highly detailled sea chart of this region in ,Mecklenburg-Vorpommern' with the coastling along the Baltic Sea. The map is in an extremly high scale with an enormous amount of small place names, islands, anchor places, marked sand banks, depths, etc. In the lower left corner eqipped with a fine plan of Stralsund. 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)
