Antique Map by Willem Blaeu & Son Joan. Of Alsatia (Alsace) (Province in France). Circa 1680s Hand Colored. Frederik de Wit Restrike. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself! This is a beautiful antique map engraving. The map was originally done Willem Blaeu of Amesterdam, around 1645 by his son Joan. When Joan died in the early 1670s, and there was also a fire at the Blaeu business, a F. So, this engraving is in our opinion a circa 1680s restrike of the original engraving. The Kennedy Galleries (one of the oldest art galleries in the United States), noted below, thought the map may have dated to 1663 to 1667. You be the judge before acquiring. This engraving is not some modern reproduction of this map. Old paper and aging to piece consistent with being over 330 years old. Not sure what version of this map this one actually is. Any help with that would be much appreciated. Beautiful hand coloring and details. Lots of blue red, and gold hand colored areas. Great images of angels around the map title at the top and the inset map of the DuPont area in the lower left. There is the number “54″ is written in old brownish ink in the upper right corner. May be the plate number from the Map Atlas the map was originally in. Has something like “Long Com 10″ written in cursive in brown ink in the lower right corner of the engraving. No foxing or brown of the paper. Some very minor spotting in places The map was once folded down the middle. So, the map probably came out of an Atlas. We see no rips, tears or repairs to the engraving. The engraving was professionally mounted in a gold colored wood frame with white and red matting. Frame’s gold finish shows some loss. The backing is intact on the frame to keep dust and dirt off of the engraving. The hanging wire is still in place. Has labels on the back from the Kennedy Galleries of 5th Avenue New York that says the engraving dates to 1663 to 1667. Then another gallery label from The Treasury of America’s Prints in Wykoff, NJ whom probably did the most recent framing and matting of the piece. The Antique Frederik de Wit Map after Willem & Joan Blaeau in frame is 26.25″ tall, by 29-1/8″ across, by. The map showing within the matting is 19.5″ tall by 22-5/8″ across.

1783 CARTE DE LORRAINE ET D'ALSACE Map of France LORRAINE ALSACE Region (JM)

1783 CARTE DE LORRAINE ET D’ALSACE Map of France LORRAINE ALSACE Region (JM). A fine and very rare original antique map titled. CARTE du Gouvernement de LORRAINE et D’ALSACE. A highly detailed and decorative map of the regions of Lorraine and Alsace on the German border. 1743 – 1793 was a Paris based bookseller, engraver, and map publisher active in the mid to late 18th century. Lattre published a large corpus of maps, globes, and atlases in conjunction with a number of other important French cartographic figures, including Janvier, Zannoni, Bonne and Delamarche. He is also known to have worked with other European cartographers such as William Faden of London and the Italian cartographer Santini. Paris court records indicate that Lattre brought charges against several other period map publishers, including fellow Frenchman Desnos and the Italian map engraver Zannoni, both of whom he accused of copying his work. Lattre’s offices and bookshop were located at 20 rue St. Cartographer Rigobert Bonne (1727 – 1794) was one of the most important French cartographers of the late 18th century. Bonne was born in Ardennes at Raucourt, France. He taught himself mathematics and by eighteen was a working engineer. In the subsequent years, Bonne became one of the most respected masters of mathematics, physics and geography in Paris. In 1773, Bonne succeeded Jacques-Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the. Depot de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period – most on equal-area projection known erroneously as the’Bonne Projection’. Bonne’s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th century and early 18th century towards a more scientific and practical aeshetic. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is high regards for its details, historical importance and overall aesthetic appeal. Bonne died of edema in 1794, but his son Charles-Marine Rigobert Bonne continued to publish his work well after his father’s death. Overall size of map is 48cm x 35cm with large margins, perfect for mounting & framing CONDITION: Excellent overall condition with hand colouring and the centrefold, as issued.

1628 Sebastian Munster & RMD Antique Map Selestat or Schlettstadt Alsace, France

1628 Sebastian Munster & RMD Antique Map Selestat or Schlettstadt Alsace, France

1628 Sebastian Munster & RMD Antique Map Selestat or Schlettstadt Alsace, France

Munster, Sebastian 1489 1552. 15in x 12in (380mm x 305mm). (A) Very Good Condition. This fine original wood block engraved antique map a birds eye view of the French town of Selestat, formally Schlettstadt under German rule, in the Bas-Rhin in the Grand Est region was engraved by Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (RMD) and published in the German Section of Sebastian Munsters 1628 edition of Cosmographia, Das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, Darinnen Aller Monarchien Keyserthumben, Königreichen, Fürstenthumben, Graff- und Herrschafften, Länderen, Stätten und Gemeinden. Ursprung Cosmographia, that is: description of the whole world, in it all monarchies Keyser thumben, kingdoms, prince thumben, graff and herrschafften, countries, places and municipalities. Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (15251571) was a Swiss artist. He made several of the woodcuts for De re metallica (the metals and mining treatise by Georgius Agricola, the father of mineralogy) and for Sebastian Münsters Cosmographia. Deutschs father, Niklaus Manuel Deutsch (the Elder), and Deutsch\’s brother, Niklaus Manuel Deutsch the Younger, were also artists. The elder Niklaus had taken the last name Manuel, but all three also commonly used Deutsch as part of their names and signed their paintings with initials ending in D. Sélestat , German Schlettstadt , is a town in the department of Bas-Rhin in the Grand Est region (until the end of 2015 Alsace) about 40 km southwest of Strasbourg and about 40 km northwest of Freiburg located in Breisgau on the Ill. The city is the seat of the sub-prefecture of the Arrondissement Sélestat-Erstein. While Strasbourg is known for having erected the first whole Christmas tree on a public square in the city for the whole of the Advent season, Sélestat is considered the birthplace of the Christmas tree. An entry in a Humanist Library accounting book dates from 1521: Item IIII shill pay the forester meyen to sanct Thomas day 4 shillings to pay for the forester to guard the trees from St. Although this entry documents for the first time the passage between decorated hanging pine branches and the whole Christmas tree in private homes, it does not quite prove that Sélestat introduced this custom. This new practice probably originated in the more global context of opposition between the established Catholic Church and the 16th-century Lutherans in the Lower Alsace area between Strasbourg and Schlettstadt. In addition, the imperial city flourished in many areas in this century and its population was certainly susceptible to social-religious innovations. It is documented in many places in Alsace that arrangements and wall or door decorations made of evergreen plants were considered by the Catholic Church extremely bad, since they were known to be introduced by the Protestants. In Alsace, people traditionally celebrated the feast of St. Nicholas and therefore organized Nicholas markets. As in the other Protestant imperial territories, the Lutherans also wanted to celebrate Christmas in Alsace: at first a whole fir was hanging from the ceiling of the room, then it was placed in a bucket full of sand. The village chaplains were to reveal abuses in the stately forests nine days before and nine after Christmas. By the end of the 16th century, whole firs were first in the Alsatian guild houses, then relatively early in all more or less noble family houses. Vauban built new fortifications and the city became the site of a French garrison. It regained some prosperity, but its growth remained low compared to other Alsatian cities. With the administrative reforms of the French Revolution, Schlettstadt became part of the Bas-Rhin département. 1876/80, the King Karl barracks was built here. In 1914, the Rheinische Jäger Battalion No. 8 was stationed there. Between 1918 and 1940 she was occupied as Caserne Schweisguth by the French army.

Background: Cosmographia, Das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, Darinnen Aller Monarchien Keyserthumben, Königreichen, Fürstenthumben, Graff- und Herrschafften, Länderen, Stätten und Gemeinden. Ursprung, Regiment, Reichthumb, Gewalt und. Dessgleichen Aller deren, beyder Ständen, Regenten: Keysern, Königen, Bäpsten, Bischoffen. By Sebastian Münster was first published in 1544 and is the earliest German-language description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after Munsters death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel). It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. Among the notable maps within Cosmographia is the map Tabula novarum insularum, which is credited as the first map to show the American continents as geographically discrete. Munsters earlier geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540, he published a Latin edition of Ptolemys Geographia with illustrations. Munster, Sebastian 1489 1552 German cartographer, cosmographer, and Hebrew scholar whose work Cosmographia (1544; \\\”Cosmography\\\”) was the earliest German description of the world and a major work in the revival of geographic thought in 16th-century Europe. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and even Czech. Altogether, about 40 editions of the Cosmographia appeared between 1544 and 1628 and was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. Münster was a major influence in popular thinking in Europe for the next 200 years. This success was due not only to the level of descriptive detail but also to the fascinating full page maps & views as well as smaller woodcuts that were included in the text. Many of the woodcuts were executed by famous engravers of the time including Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel. Münster acquired the material for his book in three ways. Firstly he researched all available literary sources across Germany, Switzerland and other parts of Europe. Secondly he obtained original manuscript material from locals all over Europe for description of the countryside, cities, villages, towns, rivers and local history. Finally, he obtained further material first hand on his travels (primarily in south-west Germany, Switzerland, and Alsace). In 1588 Sebastian Petri re-released Cosomgraphia and re-issued many of Munsters maps and views in the \\\”copperplate style\\\”. The maps in this release were more sophisticated than with earlier publications of Cosomgraphia and were based on the 1570 release of Abraham Ortelius monumental work Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.

The word Antique in the traditional sense refers to an item that is more than a hundred years old. The majority of antique maps for sale today come from books or atlases and have survived due to the protection offered by the hardback covers. The first thing to determine when staring a collection or purchasing an item, is what is important to you. Most collectors prefer to build their collections around a theme. You may decide to collect maps from one region or country, charting its development through time. Similarly you could collect maps of one particular period in time, by type i. Sea or celestial charts or by cartographer. The collector might also want to consider the theme of cartographical misconceptions such as California as an island or Australia as Terra Australis or the Great Southern Land. The subject is so wide that any would-be-collector has almost endless possibilities to find his own little niche within the field, and thereby build a rewarding collection.
