Description

Antique Map East Indies by Visscher titled ‘INDIAE ORIENTALIS, nec non INSULARUM ADIACENTIUM Nova Defriptio, Per Nicolaum Visfcher’.

An early and relatively rare 18th century map of Southeast Asia and the east Indian Islands (Indonesia) in original colour by Nicolas Visscher II (1649-1702) originally from an edition of Visscher’s Atlas Minor published after 1682, when he was granted his patent (Cum Privilegio) and his death in 1706. This edition of the map was actually published by Petrus Schenk II (1693-1775), the son of Petrus Schenk I (1661-1711), probably in the Atlas Contractus that was re-published in 1719 after the Schenk family had acquired some of the plates from Nicolas Vissher’s stock. The map shows the same geography as that of the De Wit maps of the region published in 1662 and 1675 and shows evidence of Abel Tasman’s discoveries along the north coast of Australia in the 1640s.

Very good condition apart from some age-toning in the lower margin; measures 460 x 555 mm.

Artists and Engravers: Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prominent Dutch geographer and publisher. Born the son of a herring merchant, Blaeu chose not fish but mathematics and astronomy for his focus. He studied with the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, with whom he honed his instrument and globe making skills. Blaeu set up shop in Amsterdam, where he sold instruments and globes, published maps, and edited the works of intellectuals like Descartes and Hugo Grotius. In 1635, he released his atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive, Atlas novus. Willem died in 1638. He had two sons, Cornelis (1610-1648) and Joan (1596-1673). Joan trained as a lawyer, but joined his father’s business rather than practice. After his father’s death, the brothers took over their father’s shop and Joan took on his work as hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company. Later in life, Joan would modify and greatly expand his father’s Atlas novus, eventually releasing his masterpiece, the Atlas maior, between 1662 and 1672.
