Description: Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 16.25" x 20.75".

Comments: Beautifully detailed town plan of Tiel in central Holland, circa 1649, shown in an unusual panoramic birds-eye view. Shows the pastoral and maritime nature of the area, with farms, houses, churches and ships in the surrounding waters. Includes two coats of arms. Dutch text on verso. Published around the time of the Spanish acknowledgment of the Dutch Republic in "Tooneel der Steden van der Vereenighde Nederlanden" ("Town books of the Netherlands"). Many of the town plans included in this publication emphasized their strategic importance in response to the Spanish occupation. Wear and chipping along edges, two small tears to bottom edge. One of the most famous mapmakers of his time, Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) and his family worked out of Amsterdam. This series was published by his son Jan (c. 1599-1673), who took over the business upon his father's death. Expert repairs to centerfold. Minor glue residue along top margin.

I have just returned from visiting NY and your store. I immediately came to the site to see what else you had ... am I in trouble! I could have spent hours (ok, more hours) there! The staff was wonderful! My husband and I are avid readers (of everything) and we will be contacting you again I am sure. Thank you so much! - Tammy Z.
