17th Century Hand-Colored Map of a Region in West Germany by Janssonius

$1,275

About the Item

This attractive highly detailed 17th century original hand-colored map is entitled "Archiepiscopatus Maghdeburgensis et Anhaltinus Ducatus cum terris adjacentibus". It was published in Amsterdam in 1640 by Johannes Janssonius in the atlas "Theatrum orbis terrarum, sive, Atlas novus" after an earlier map by Gerardus Mercator (1512-1594) and Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612). It includes the 17th century region of the Archbishopric of Magdeburg, and the Duchy of Anhalt in West Germany. The map is presented in a cream-colored mat with a mylar window. The mat that measures 30" wide x 27.5" high and the sheet measures 24.38 " wide x 21" high. There is a central vertical fold, as issued. There is some spotting in the margins of the sheet, but not affecting the map. There is minimal color offset in the upper portions of the map from the opposite side, resulting from the map having been folded in the atlas for centuries. The map has full margins and is hinged with archival material at the top only. Johannes Janssonius, also known as Jan Jansson, was born 1588 in Arnhem, Netherlands. He grew up in the book business. He married the daughter of the famous Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius and became a book publisher in Amsterdam. He later went into the book and map publishing business with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius. In addition to their own maps, they published several editions of the famous Mercator/Hondius atlas. Jansson was responsible for expanding their company, publishing several world and city atlases in competition with the Blaeu publishing family, also in Amsterdam. Jansson's most prominent works include the "Atlas Novus" (1638), the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639) and his huge eleven volume "Atlas Major" (1647).
