Buchbeschreibung Studio Editions, London, first edition, 1997, 1997. Cloth, folio, 37 cm, 224 pp, 100 colour maps. Introduction by John Goss; foreword by Peter Clark. From the blurb: "Joan Blaeu's The Atlas Major, first published in 1662, is still the largest atlas ever produced. Over six hundred maps portray the world as it was known in the middle of the 17th century with its great empires, far-off exotic kingdoms and lands of legend. The embellishment and decoration of these maps, unsurpassed in their beauty and sumptuous detail, bring to life a long-lost age of mapmaking. The Atlas Major was the most expensive book sold in the 17th century. Published in an original edition of about three hundred copies, the atlas was not only functional, but it was also the great showpiece of the Amsterdam mapmaker's art. Copies were presented to kings and emperors (the French edition was dedicated to Louis XIV, The Sun King, and his finance minister, Colbert) and were bought by wealthy noblemen and merchants to display at home and impress their rivals." Near Fine in slightly chipped dustwrapper. Artikel-Nr. ABE-38592
