Biography
  • Willem Jansz. Blaeu and his son Joan Blaeu are the most widely known cartographic publishers of the seventeenth century. The 'Atlas Major' in its various editions was the largest atlas ever published. It was justly famed for its production values, its high typographic standard, the quality of its engraving, ornamentation, binding and colouring. The atlas frequently served as the official gift of the Dutch Republic to princes and other authorities. It is one of the most lavish and highly prized of all seventeenth-century illustrated books.The present atlas was published sometime around 1684 and contains maps by both Jansson and Blaeu, and sheds a facinating light on the subsequent fortunes of their respective business after their deaths. Following the devastating The framework for the atlas is taken from Blaeu's, twelve volume, Grand Atlas of 1667, with its title pages and frontispieces used throughout volumes I-X. Of the 643 maps in the atlas 267 are by Janssonius (seven of them with the rare imprint of Janssonius Heirs). The sections on Russia, Germany, The Low Countries, Switzerland, Africa, Asia, and America are all supplied from Janssonius' stock and volumes XI and XII - Asia and America in Blaeu's Atlas - are replaced by Janssonius' Sea Atlas and Historical Atlas. The America and Asia sections are combined with the Blaeu fine Atlas of China (vol. X), which was the first atlas of China to be published in Europe. The atlas collates as follows: Volume I: 'Geographie, qui est la Premiere Partie de la Cosmographie Blauiane en Laquelle la terre est Represesentée dans des Cartes et Illustrée de Descriptions'. World, Arctic, and Europe, Norway and Denmark, 61 maps and plates, including 5 plans and 9 plates of Tycho Brahe's astronomical observatory on the island of Hven in the Danish Sound. Volume II: 'Second Volume de la Geographie Blauiane contenant le III, IV, V, VI &​ VII livre de l'Europe'. Scandinavia, Russia, Poland, Southern Europe and Greece.
