Plate : 'Gravelinga Gallis Gravelines Dicta'. (Gravelines.) Copper engraved town view and groundplan from Blaeu's townbook of the southern Netherlands, first published in 1649. Blaeu composed his townbooks towards the end of the conflict with Spain and consequently the atlas became linked with the Dutch struggle for independence, proudly showing cities and stategic places. Gravelines was situated in the southern, Spanish, Netherlands and it was since long clear that it would not be reconquerred by the rebelious north, especially because such a reunion would not be supported by the majority of the southern population. However, in denial of this fact it was common practice to refer to the south as part of the nation and to refer to it as a symbol of nationa Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark.

Table Generalle Des Longitudes et Latitudes des Villes plus recommees du Monde, dressee sur Meridien des Canaries.(Latitudes & Longitudes of World Cities/ early thematic cartography/ geometric coordinates). Issued Paris, 1649 by Jean Boisseau. Fascinating and very scarce mid-17th century engraved longitude chart.*Utterly fascinating when examined in detail. The diagram is composed of six concentric circles using the Canaray Islands as the Prime meridien (as opposed to Greenwich), each representing various nation or global regions such as the Americas, Indies, Poland, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Africa. Within each of these are long circular lists of specific important world cities or towns, each precisely corresponding to the degree. Hundreds of global cities and towns are named, a very interesting conceptual diagram. Pre-dates by more than 100 years the ability of sailing ships being able to determine their longitude while sailing at sea. Among the earliest and possibly scarcest of thematic maps relating to this scientific topic then of keen popular interest, not solved until the 1770's by John Harrison. Excellent early example of creative, visually unique scientific navigation and cartographic thematic cartography . Clean overall, couple minor expert paper repairs so well done they are almost invisible to the untrained eye. A very well preserved and nice looking example of this rare antique thematic cartographic navigational chart. Small square folio format. Sheet measures c. 17" x 14 3/4". Printed area measures c. 14" x 14 1/4". *The engraved plate shows clear signs o … [Click Below for Full Description]
