About this Item

2 sheets joined (sheet size 20 2/8 x 23 2/8 inches; 18 4/8 x 22 1/8 inches to the neat line) full margins showing the plate mark. A fine engraved detailed map of Europe, the title in an elaborate, allegorical cartouche, text about eclipses within a cartouche upper middle left; original hand color in outline (a little toned at the edges). An impressive map of Europe by Homann in exceptional condition. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach in Bavaria. He got his education at a Jesuit school wich prepared him for an ecclesiastical career. Instead of becoming an ecclesiast he converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography and in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann became very famous with his maps of the Americas. Bookseller Inventory # 72EJD14
