Bold : Perfect/ Fine /Very Good/Good/Fair/Poor. Johannes Janssonius, more commonly known to us as Jan Jansson, was born in Arnhem where his father was a bookseller and publisher (Jan Janszoon the Elder). In 1612 he married the daughter of the cartographer and publisher Jodocus Hondius, and then set up in business in Amsterdam as a book publisher. In 1616 he published his first maps of France and Italy and from then onwards he produced a very large number of maps, perhaps not quite rivaling those of the Blaeu family but running a very close second in quantity and quality. From about 1630 to 1638 he was in partnership with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, issuing further editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases to which his name was added. On the death of Henricus he took over the business, expanding the atlas still further, until eventually he published an 11-volume Atlas Major on a scale similar to Blaeu’s Atlas Major. The first full edition of Jansson’s English County Maps was published in 1646 but some years earlier he issued a number of British maps in the Mercator/Hondius/Jansson series of atlases (1636-44); the maps were printed from newly engraved plates and are different from the later 1646 issue and are now rarely seen (see Appendix B for further details). In general appearance Jansson’s maps are very similar to those of Blaeu and, in fact, were often copied from them, but they tend to be more flamboyant and decorative. After Jansson’s death his heirs published a number of maps in an Atlas Contractus in 1666, later still many of the plates of his British maps were acquired by Pieter Schenk and Gerard Valck who published them again in 1683 as separate maps.

1633 Jansson Map BEAUCE (Eure-et-Loir) Chartres Orléans Paris France DECORATIVE

49.5 cm x 37.5 cm copperplate engraving, 56 cm x 47 cm sheet size, modern hand colour, Amsterdam, engraved circa 1631, printed 1633. We are pleased to offer this scarce original map of the Beauce. Jansson (also known as Janssonius) married the daughter of the great engraver and cartographer Jodocus Hondius in 1612 and published his maps independently, but he joined the Hondius firm in 1630 and began contributing maps to their popular Mercator/Hondius atlas, eventually taking over the firm after the death of his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius. Jansson’s original maps are nearly all derivative of other earlier maps (he often made close copies of Blaeu maps, presumably to the great irritation of Joan Blaeu) but they are all very finely engraved, and usually quite decorative. This example of the map is from the 1633 German language edition of the atlas, and had been previously published in Jansson’s 1631 Atlas of France Theatrum Universae Galliae. The map is presented in a “sideways” western orientation so Chartres, although located to the southwest, appears “above” Paris etc. Quite decorative and beautifully engraved, this example will make a fine presentation if matted and framed. Decorative title cartouche – note tiny “bricks” in frame, gargoyle heads. Mileage scale on monument with gilt fleur-de-lys. To get a sense of map detail consider that the distance from Paris to Chartres as seen below measures 22 cm actual size. Note pictorial topography, tiny “forests”. The extensive German text on verso is a fascinating document in and of itself. A representative excerpt derived from the 1636 English edition of the Atlas. It (Orléans) is one of the most famous Universities in of France which Philip the Fair founded Anno 1312, wherein is chiefly taught the civil law, and where they speak the best and purest French in France… Condition – Please note carefully: This 379-year-old map is in overall very good condition as can be ascertained from photos, strong impression with distinct platemark, superb hand colour work , image area essentially pristine. The map exhibits a crease in lower left corner margin that just crosses into image area before terminating as can be evaluated in photos. There is some trivial scattered offset in unprinted areas that can be evaluated in photos; also some minor show-through of text on verso in unprinted areas as is usual with this edition. Verso exhibits small University of Copenhagen library stamp; deaccessioned with proper provenance. Part of original binding strip is present on verso and its outline is faintly visible on recto. In all a well-preserved example with superb hand colour work that will make an elegant presentation if matted and framed. Welcome and we encourage you to visit our other auctions.
