Description: Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 18.75".

Comments: Beautiful map of northwest Spain in original color with gold highlights, circa 1650. Decorative elements include a compass rose and two ornate cartouches-one with lions holding a coat of arms, and the other with an armillary sphere. Minor overall aging and offsetting, full original margins. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons.
