Background: The County of Hainaut sometimes given the spelling Hainault, was a historical lordship within the medieval Holy Roman Empire with its capital eventually established at Mons (Dutch: Bergen), and named after the river Haine, both now in Belgium. Besides Mons, it included the city of Valenciennes, now in France. It consisted of what is now the Belgian province of Hainaut and the eastern part of the French département of Nord. Originally a gau of Lotharingia, Hainaut was briefly a part of West Francia (911-25) before becoming definitively attached to Germany. The county was divided in 958 and only emerged in its more or less final form in 1071. Hainaut was culturally and linguistically French. In 1432, Hainaut was acquired by the House of Valois-Burgundy and in 1477 passed to the Habsburgs with the rest of the Burgundian Netherlands and became part of the Burgundian Circle in 1512. It was ruled by the Spanish branch of the Habsburgs from 1555 to 1714. In 1659 and 1678 southern Hainaut was acquired by France, and in 1797 the rest of the county was ceded to France by the Emperor Francis II, who was also count of Hainaut. De Vaugondy, Gilles Robert 1688 – 1766 Didier Robert 1723 – 86 Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy were father and son, respectively, and produced their atlas, globes and maps in concert. In many cases they did not use the initials of their first names when signing their maps, so it can be unclear at times who made a given map. On some maps fils or filio follows the name, designating its author as the son. In other instances, the authorship can be determined by the distinctive way each signed his maps: the father normally used \\\M. Robert, \\\” leaving off the last name, and the son, \\\”Robert de Vaugondy. \\\ The Atlas Universal [Paris, 1757] was one of the most important 18th century atlases and one of the great achievements of the French Enlightenment. The Vaugondy\\\’s employed strict standards for including maps in this atlas and in many cases subjected them to astronomically derived readings for latitude and longitude. Moreover, \\\’their frequent use of eighteenth century sources, often from the 1740s, provided their atlas with up-to-date information. While their preference was for maps that bad been surveyed in the field and maps published in the region itself, they did not hesitate to turn to older sources when more recent maps were found to be lacking. 61 For their maps of Canada and South America, the Vaugondy\\\’s had access to sources held by the Depot de la Marine, the official French repository for maritime-related information. Like Ortelius and Mercator before them, the Vaugondy`s listed the sources of their maps, which is of incalculable benefit to anyone seeking to understand not only their maps but also those of the period. \\\A feature of the maps of the Atlas Universel which attracted unanimous praise from critics was the cartouches. 64 A number of artisans worked on their design and engraving; several cartouches were engraved and signed by the Haussard sisters. Among the most pictorial cartouches are the four found on maps showing the postal routes of Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal. They depict postal carriers en route in richly detailed settings. Please note all items auctioned are genuine, we do not sell reproductions.

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.

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.
