1716 Homann (De Wit) Map HAINAUT France Belgium Mons FINE MARTIAL CARTOUCHE

57 cm x 48 cm copperplate engraving, 60 cm x 52 cm sheet size, original hand colour, Nürnberg , 1716. Homann was a master engraver but not a true cartographer despite his eventual appointment as Imperial Geographer – the cartography of his maps was unoriginal and based almost entirely on the work of other geographers although his maps often outshine their predecessors in engraving work and decorative elements. Homann here presents his bold and distinctive style of engraving a flamboyant title cartouche on what is otherwise a very detailed map with hundreds of tiny “trees” and fortified cities. A beautifully engraved map, this well-preserved example will make an elegant presentation if matted and framed. Putti present the quartered arms of the Counts of Hainaut, while martial figures present the title “banner” in this handsomely engraved cartouche. While the outline and wash colour of the map is original, the hand colour in the cartouche is by a later hand – Homann maps were coloured at time of publication but the cartouches were always issued uncoloured. However, many buyers of Homann atlases and “composite” atlases featuring maps from various cartographers and publishers preferred the more decorative and less austere look of a coloured cartouche and elected to have the cartouches coloured. The work on this example is both charming and skillfully executed, making for an exceptionally decorative map. To get a sense of map detail consider that the distance from Douai (Douay) to Valenciennes as seen below measures just 15 cm actual size. Since there was not much topography in the region to depict pictorially, Homann seems to have decided to compensate with pictorial forests in abundance. Note intersecting road network. However the area north of Mons allowed the plate to be adorned with a few rolling hills at least.. Condition – Please note carefully. The map is in very good condition as can be ascertained from photos, very strong impression with distinct platemark, original hand colour bright and vivid, no text on verso, centrefold as issued. Part of original binding strip is present on verso and its outline is faintly visible on recto parallel to centrefold. There is a slightly diagonal crease to the left of and more or less parallel to centrefold in the lower half of map. There are several instances of offset from the deep red colour for cities (almost certainly by a later hand along with the cartouche) affecting the conjugate opposite side of map from when it was folded; these can be evaluated in photos. Bottom margin somewhat distressed with truncation of lower right corner and several creases and chips. Minor soiling to margins, image area quite clean. In all a fine example of a scarce and decorative map that will make an elegant presentation if matted and framed. Welcome and we encourage you to visit our other auctions.
