About this Item: Amsterdam: Joannes Janssonius, 1641-39-41., 1641. 3 volumes. Folio (19 3/8 x 12 2/8 inches). Three fine hand-coloured engraved title-pages, those to volumes one and II HEIGHTENED IN GOLD (title-page to volume III and index leaf of volume II restored). 319 fine double-page engraved maps, hand-coloured in outline, a few with cartouches HEIGHTENED IN GOLD, woodcut illustrations and tailpieces (light discolouration and browning particularly to margins, some offsetting, several other leaves with margins strengthened, occasional clean tears, some early repairs). FINE 18th-century Italian mottled vellum, all edges gilt (extremities a bit rubbed). A rare and attractive set of the 3 volume French edition of Jansson's "Atlas Novus". The set collates as follows: volume I, Koeman II Me97B, 109 maps; volume II, a variant of 92B with 98 rather than 99 maps, and with the title-page and address not on overslips, probably an intermediate state between 92A and 92B; volume III, 112 maps, a variant of Me 39B with the date on the title-page altered to 1641. By 1638 Jansson had taken control of the publishing firm begun by his father-in-law Jodocus Hondius, and issued his "Atlas Novus", a completely new work although based on the work of Mercator. He expanded the atlas to three volumes in competition with Blaeu, it was a great success and published long after Jansson's death in 1664. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Seller Inventory # 002545
