The Atlas Maior, the cartographical masterpiece of the Barogue, was brought out in 1662 and 1665 by the Amsterdam publisher Joan Bleu, one of Hollands leading cartographers. Taschen's bibliophile reprint of this costly atlas is based on the hand- coloured copy with gilt highlights now in the Austrian National library in Vienna. Alongside original quotes from Joan Blaeu relating to the individual maps, the text by Peter van der Krogt explains the historical and cultural associations and introduces the reader to the fascinating world of early modern cartography. The D/W is lightly sunned at the top and base and also has some light scratches, otherwise a clean and tight copy. Also this book is very heavy 6.5Kg minimum and will incur extra shipping cost over and above our normal international rates. please email us for details.
