Description

One of the masters of early seventeenth century Dutch map making, Willem Blaeu spent two years studying cartography under the Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe. His career began from here as he perfected his skills making  globes, maps and navigational instruments in Amsterdam in 1596. Over the following years the firm of Blaeu produced remarkable sets of maps dealing with all fields of cartographic investigation, some of the more noteworthy being: Terrestrial and Celestial Globes (published around 1599),  Sea Atlas (1608), World Atlas (1630) and General Atlas of Towns (1644).
Until 1617 Willem Blaeu signed his maps Guilielmus Janssonius or Willems Jans Zoon. After that date his maps bear the appellation, Guilielmus or G. Blaeu. In 1633 he achieved the most important position in Dutch cartography when he was appointed mapmaker to the Dutch East India Company.
This map dates to c1635 and is newly framed in a 'Hogarth' frame.
