Book Description Carte géographique, feuille de 543 x 449 mm., gravure de 475 x 383 mm., carte gravée issue de l'édition française de l'atlas publié par HONDIUS entre 1613 et 1616 (Koeman 1:112), 2 trous de vers, trace de pli central, certains caractères imprimés au dos transparaissent dans les marges, 2 petites taches brunes sur la carte, très bel exemplaire. L’Atlas de Gérard MERCATOR (1512-1594)Dans sa Chronologia publiée en 1569, Mercator révèle son projet d’écrire un ouvrage cosmologique en cinq parties sur la création du monde et son histoire. La troisième partie consacrée à la géographie devait comprendre une géographie ancienne qui ne fut jamais réalisée, une réédition de la Geographia de Ptolémé (publiée en 1578 et 1584) et une géographie moderne que constituera l’Atlas. La première édition de l’Atlas paraîtra en 1585 avec les cartes de France, de Suisse, des Pays-Bas espagnols et de l’Allemagne. Italiae, Sclavoniae et Graeciae tabule geographice furent ajoutées pour la deuxième édition de 1589.Après la mort de Mercator, en 1594, l’Atlas a continué à paraître par les soins de son fils Rumold et la collaboration des trois petits-fils de Mercator. La nouvelle édition de 1595 comportera les cartes de l’Orbis terrae et d’Europa par Rumold, Africa et Asia par Gérard junior et America par Michel. En 1604, la famille Mercator vendra les plaques de cuivre de l’Atlas au cartographe et éditeur Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) qui consacra le reste de sa vie professionnelle à cette entreprise. Il ajoutera trente-six cartes à sa nouvelle édition de 1606. Après sa mort, son fils Jodocus junior continuera à assurer l’édition de l’Atlas, il s’associera avec Johannes Janssonius.

Gerard MERCATOR junior

Book Description Amsterdam, 1595. Questa splendida carta dell'Africa appare per la prima volta nell' Atlas sive Cosmographicae di Gerard Mercator, pubblicato postumo nel 1595. Come indicato nel titolo, questa mappa è realizzata dal nipote di Gerard Mercator, Gerard Mercator Jr. che ha desunto le informazioni dalla grande mappa del mondo di suo nonno del 1569. Mercator senior, a sua volta, ha utilizzato come fonti i lavori di Gastaldi e Waldseemuller. Questa mappa ha un alto grado di precisione in particolare lungo la costa che non è stata ineguagliata per tutto il XVI secolo (Klemp). Gran parte delle regioni interne del continente rimanda alla tradizione tolemaica; il fiume Nilo è mostrato con le sue sorgenti nei Lunae Montes. A differenza però di altri cartografi, Mercator non ricorre alle raffigurazioni di animali. L'unica figura nella mappa è quella leggendaria del Prete Gianni, nell'area nordorientale. Il grande cartiglio con il titolo è decorato con dei frutti e due satiri. Incisione su rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, lievi fioriture sui margini bianchi, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questo esemplare è tratto dall'edizione francese dell'Atlas sive Cosmographicae A classic map of Africa. The map first appeared in Gerard Mercator’s Atlas sive Cosmographicae., published posthumously in 1595. As stated in the title, this map is by Gerard Mercator's grandson, Gerard Mercator Jr. He extracted the information for this map from his famous grandfather's large world map of 1569. Mercator also used as sources the Waldseemuller and Gastaldi maps. This map has a high degree of accuracy especially along the coastline that was unsurpassed by any other 16th century cartographer (Klemp). Much of the interior of Africa defers to the traditions of Ptolemy; the Nile river is shown with the two lakes and the Mountains of the Moon across southern Africa. Mercator tried to adhere to a more scientific approach and did not include the numerous beasts of other cartographers. The only figure within Africa is the seated legendary priest-king Prester John in Ethiopia. The cartouche is quite decorative with fruit and two satyrs. This particular map is from a French edition of the Atlas sive Cosmographicae Copper engraving, original colours, in very good condition. Betz #31; Norwich #21; Van der Krogt (Vol. I) #8600:1A. Dimensioni 475 380mm. Seller Inventory # s35008
