About this Item

Very good double hemisphere world map from a Keur bible, b&w as issued. The engraver/designer for this map was J. v. Jagen (sculps. et dir.; engraved on lower central edge of plate just inside neatline). Folds as issued. Two smaller spheres upper (Polus Arcticus) and lower (Polus Antarcticus) center. The majority of place names and verso text are in Dtuch. The decorative allegorical surrounds are quite nice. The map image measures 30 x 45 cm, with the diameter of each hemisphere measuring 22 cm. The Keur family were active bible publishers from the mid 17th to mid 18th centuries. This particular map corresponds to variant K III, entry 137, p. 205 in Poortman and Augusteijn's "Kaarten in Bijbels." The map date is approximate. There is no recto title banner for this issue.
