Item Description: Amsterdam [circa ]., 1650. Copper engraving with original colour in outline (Very Good, soft folds, green colour slightly age-toned and fragile, with a small hole in the image, margins slighty water-stained), image: 31,5 x 40,5 cm (12.4 x 16 inches). Map with stunning original colour in outline shows Transylvania in today's Romania. This map with English text on the back was published in an atlas by Jan Jansson. Jan Jansson (1588-1664), often known as "Janssonius" was, along with his archrivals, the Blaeu family, the most important map publisher of his era. Jansson married the daughter of the great Amsterdam mapmaker Jodocus Hondius the Younger, who played a large part in the rise of Amsterdam as the dominant cartographic production centre in the 17th Century. He transformed the Hondius firm into a powerhouse of geographical publishing, and notably produced the Atlas Novus (1638) and the Atlas Major (1660), the 11 volumes of which included a town atlas, a hydrographic atlas, an atlas of the ancient world, and Andreas Cellarius’s incomparable celestial atlas.

Item Description: Amsterdam, Janssonius., 1654. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem – buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory # 328AG

Item Description: Amsterdam: Amsterdam:Pieter Schenk and Gerald Valk, [after 1694]., 1694. Single sheet (21 x 24 2/8 inches). Exceptionally fine double-page engraved map of New England, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and part of Virginiawith magnificent hand-colour, the scale, dedication and title each within elaborate rococo cartouches along the bottom edge, the land decorated with images of native American villages and wild animals, the ocean with war canoe (old vertical fold a little browned in the crease, remains of guard on verso). The third state, with the Valk and Schenk imprint, with the added dedication to Gualthero de Raet with his coat of arms and the imprint of Valk and Schenk, first published by Jansson in 1650, and one of the fundamental prototype maps of New England, the then most important part of colonial America, of the 17th-century. Initially compiled from numerous manuscript and printed sources, the map follows the general outline of Adriaen Block's chart of 1614 with the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain based on Champlain. Many European settlements are depicted with several English settlements appearing for the first time. Jansson's primary concern was "to produce a detailed and informative map of the Dutch province of New Netherland and the surrounding region. The result is a valuable historical source and as evocative a picture as any we have of North America between Jamestown and Quebec. Besides these two towns, the settlements on the Delawre (Zuydt), Hudson and Connecticut Rivers, those in the vicinity of Manhattan and Long Island and those along the Massachsetts coast; besides the imperfectly mapped coastline and the conjectured course of rivers lay an almost unknown continent. Indians surrounded them and from the numerous native names on the map one can almost feel the pressure keeping the settlers back. "At the time this map was made the Swedish control of the Delaware River was passing to the Dutch. In 1638 a Swedish expedition had come out, established the province of New Sweden and built Fort Christina in honour of their queen. The names shown along the Delaware River on all the maps in this series refer to the forts and settlements that were set up by the numerous expeditions that followed. Often the settlers were farmers but many of them were pressed men, offered this as an alternative to prison" (Campbell "The Jansson-Visscher Maps of New England" in Tooley's "The Mapping of America", page 279). As the colonisation of New England progressed new issues of the map were published, "many of the more important events are reflected on the maps and may themselves have provided stimulus for re-publication. The capture of Fort Kasimier by the Dutch in 1655 caused the city of Amserdam to found the colony of New Amstel under its protecting walls and it seems likely that four separate copies of the prototype map were made in response to the sudden interest in the region. The English capture of New York in 1664, followed by the surrender of New Netherland and the Dutch settlements on the Delaware River are recorded in the English maps in the series, Speed and Seller, and the Ogilby-Montanus" (Campbell, page 280). The creation of New Jersey and Philadelphia are all reflected in later issues of the map. Burden #305; Fite & Freeman pp. 146-8; Tooley (Amer) p. 284, plate #146. Bookseller Inventory # 72map322

Engraved allegorical title, 643 pp. (4) and 142 full-page engraved maps after Mercator and others. French text in double-columns.

Janssonius engraved the title page in 1628 and adapting the title for the French, Dutch and German text editions.

Item Description: Amsterdam: [1657]., 1657. Folio. (475 x 320mm) Latin text. Handcoloured engraved additional title-page with pasted letterpress overslip, heightened in gold, letterpress title-page undated, 41 double-page hand-coloured engraved town plans and views of France and Switzerland, all on guards (light browning particularly to margins). Contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt roll-tool borders and central gilt arabesques, spine flat in six compartments with gilt tooled motifs, (lacking ties). Volume V only of Jansson's celebrated townbooks, a rare series of town views of France and Switzerland. Completed in eight volumes the townbooks covered the Low Countries, Germany, France and Switzerland, Scandinavia, Italy, Greece, Spain and the Far East. Jansson embarked on this ambitious project in the early 1650's having acquired the plates of the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" from Abraham Hogenberg. The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the "Civitates " is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography. Jansson engraved many new views and modified many of the original plates.
