1646 Jan Jansson Antique Map Historic regions Champagne & Brie Northern France

1646 Jan Jansson Antique Map Historic regions Champagne & Brie Northern France

Champaigne et Brie etc. 22 1/2in x 20in (570mm x 505mm). (A+) Fine Condition. This beautifully hand coloured original copper-plate engraved antique map of the historic regions of Champagne & Brie in northern France, centering on the city of Rheims by Jan Jansson – after Nicolas Sanson – was published in the 1646 Latin edition of Mercators Atlas by Jan Jansson and Henricus Hondius. Paper thickness and quality: – Heavy and stable Paper color : – off white Age of map color: – Original Colors used: – Yellow, green, blue, pink General color appearance: – Authentic Paper size: – 22 1/2in x 20in (570mm x 505mm) Plate size: – 20in x 16in (510mm x 405mm) Margins: – Min 1in (25mm). Margins: – None Plate area: – None Verso: – None. Background: Champagne is a historical province in the northeast of France, now best known as the Champagne wine region for the sparkling white wine that bears its name. It was founded in 1065 near the city of Provins and was made up of different counties descended from the early medieval kingdom of Austrasia. Brie is a historic region of northern France. It was once divided into three sections ruled by different feudal lords: the western Brie française, corresponding roughly to the modern department of Seine-et-Marne in the Île-de-France region; the eastern Brie champenoise, forming a portion of the modern department of Marne in the historic region of Champagne (part of modern-day Grand Est); and the northern Brie pouilleuse, forming part of the modern department of Aisne in Picardy. 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. Please note all items auctioned are genuine, we do not sell reproductions. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) can be issued on request. What is an Antique Map. 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. Starting a collection & pricing. Pricing is based on a number of different factors, the most important of which is regional. In any series of maps the most valuable are usually the World Map and the America/North America. The World because it is usually the most decorative and America because it has the strongest regional market. Other factors that come into play re: price is rarity, age, size, historical importance, decorative value (colour) and overall condition and quality of paper it is printed on.

A DATED ORIGINAL RIGOBERT BONNE COPPER PLATE MAP. FROM THE 18th CENTURY FRENCH ATLAS: GRENET – ATLAS PORTATIF Atlas portatif pour servir a l’intelligence des auteurs classiques. L’abbé Grenet professeur au Collège de Lisieux. Dédié à L’université de Paris. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL ENGRAVING OVER 200 YEARS OLD HAND COLOURED ON HAND MADE PAPER. The page measures approximately 14 1/2 inches x 10 1/2 inches (370mm x 270mm). This scarce map is a genuine 18th century original. Fine quality HAND MADE LAID PAPER. This attractive and important map was produced by Rigobert Bonne, a significant cartographer during the period of late 18th century. Original hand coloured detail. Titled with date of printing. This map will look superb when framed. A scarce and collectable investment. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to the King of France (Louis XV & Louis XVI) in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonnes work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. The item “1790 DATED RIGOBERT BONNE MAP FRANCE DEPARTMENTS CHAMPAGNE BRIE” is in sale since Monday, April 3, 2017. This item is in the category “Antiques\Maps, Atlases & Globes\Curiosities Maps”.

L’Isle de France, le Valois, le Vexin-Francois, Le Hurepoix, et la Brie. (Northern France, Fontainebleu, River Seine, Forest of Retz, Eure River). Printed for a very rare folio atlas, this loose map offered exactly as acquired. In totally poor condition. Dampstained down both sides, at top corners and across bottom, thin strip of newer linen tape neatly applied on back for reinforcing the centerfold. At middle centerfold are found 3 small “pulls”, spots where the map has stuck to the facing paper and pulled the printed area away leaving a white blank spot behind. However, despite the fairly poor physical condition, the map still has a noble character about it and could readily be framed for display or added to a collection because of the tremendous rarity factor alone.
