1646 Jan Jansson Antique Map the County of Vermandois, Picardy, Northern France

21 1/2in x 18in (545mm x 460mm). (A+) Fine Condition. This beautifully hand coloured original copper-plate engraved antique map of the ancient county of Vermandois now located in the Picardy region of northern France, centering on the city of St Quentin by Jan Jansson was published in the 1638 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: – 22in x 18in (560mm x 460mm) Plate size: – 19in x 14 1/2in (480mm x 370mm) Margins: – Min 2in (50mm). Margins: – Light age toning Plate area: – Light age toning Verso: – Light age toning. Background: Vermandois was a French county that appeared in the Merovingian period. Its name derives from that of an ancient tribe, the Viromandui. In the 10th century, it was organised around two castellan domains: St Quentin (Aisne) and Péronne (Somme). In today\’s times, the Vermandois county would fall in the Picardy region of northern France. Pepin I of Vermandois, the earliest of its hereditary counts, was descended in direct male line from the emperor Charlemagne. More famous was his grandson Herbert II (902943), who considerably increased the territorial power of the house of Vermandois, and kept the lawful king of France, the unlucky Charles the Simple, prisoner for six years. Herbert II was son of Herbert I, lord of Péronne and St Quentin, who was killed in 902 by an assassin in the pay of Baldwin II, Count of Flanders. His successors, Albert I, Herbert III, Albert II, Otto and Herbert IV, were not as historically significant. In 1077, the last count of the first house of Vermandois, Herbert IV, received the county of Valois through his wife. His son Eudes (II) the Insane was disinherited by the council of the Barons of France. He was lord of Saint-Simon through his wife, and the county was given to his sister Adela, whose first husband was Hugh the Great, the brother of King Philip I of France. Hugh was one of the leaders of the First Crusade, and died in 1102 at Tarsus in Cilicia. The eldest son of Hugh and Adela was count Raoul I c. 11201152, who married Petronilla of Aquitaine, sister of the queen, Eleanor, and had by her three children: Raoul (Rudolph) II, the Leper (count from 11521167); Isabelle, who possessed from 1167 to 1183 the counties of Vermandois, Valois and Amiens conjointly with her husband, Philip, Count of Flanders; and Eleanor. By the terms of a treaty concluded in 1186 with the king, Philip Augustus, the count of Flanders kept the county of Vermandois until his death, in 1191. At this date, a new arrangement gave Eleanor d. 1213 a life interest in the eastern part of Vermandois, together with the title of countess of St Quentin, and the king entered immediately into possession of Péronne and its dependencies. 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.

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.

1633 Large Antique Map France Vermandois Picardy, Gerard MERCATOR, HONDIUS

1633 Large Antique Map France “Vermandois” Picardy. Gerard Mercator , Henricus Hondius. Map maker : MERCATOR / HONDIUS. Size : image size 14.4 x 19.5 inches. / 36.5 x 49.5 cm. Description :Hand-coloured copper engraved map featuring the region of Vernandois in the northern province of Picardy. The main cities are St. Quentin, Han & Perone. There are three fancy cartouches with the title cartouche with a strange face. Mercator, second only to Ptolemy, is synonymous with the form of map projection still in use in modern cartography. Mercator was the first to apply projection to navigational charts so that compass bearings could be plotted on charts in straight lines. Mercator was born in Flanders and established himself there as a cartographer and instrument and globe maker. The quality of his work brought him the support of Charles V for whom he constructed a globe. In later life he devoted himself to his edition of the maps in Ptolemy’s Geographia, reproduced in his own engraving as nearly as possible in their original form, and to the preparation of his 3-volume collection of maps to which, for the first time was called by the word Atlas. He initially helped his father and brother to expand their family business of map making. Later in 1621, he opened his own business firm in the city of Amsterdam. His father, Jodocus Hondius Sr. Was himself an ace cartographer who was instrumental in resolving one of the major problems faced by the cartographers of the earlier age, the method of reproducing spherical objects on the two dimensional and continuous rectangular surface. In 1641, Henricus Hondius modified the existing maps made by his family to publish the Mercator- Hondius Atlas. Condition : In very good condition on hand-made laid paper with usual age toning.
