Extremely rare in this edition. Copperplate engraving and etching on a verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Original folds. Authenticity 100% guaranteed.

Van der Aa incorporated plates by other publishers such as Blaeu, Visscher, de Wit, meurs, Halma, Mortier, Allard in this work and often added broad decorative borders.

[circa 1700]. 490 x 640 mm. Beau plan manuscrit de la ville et du château de Brest, montrant le détail des fortifications de Vauban de 1683, le plan de la ville et du quartier de Recouvrance, le plan du château, la rivière Penfeld (nommée le canal sur le plan), et une petite partie de la rade. La date de 1694 figurant sous l'échelle est celle de la bataille de Camaret, lorsque les marines anglaises et hollandaises firent une tentative de débarquement pendant la guerre de la Ligue d'Augsbourg. En effet, depuis Richelieu, Brest est devenu l'un des ports d'attache de la flotte du Ponant, et depuis Louis XIV le principal arsenal militaire du royaume, où l'on construit, répare, équipe et ravitaille les navires. Croyant la place dégarnie après le départ du maréchal de Tourville pour la Méditerranée, une flotte anglo-hollandaise tenta de débarquer à Camaret, sur la presqu'île de Crozon, au sud de Brest, mais fut repoussée par Vauban que Louis XIV, prévenu du projet, avait envoyé pour défendre Brest. La carte est orientée, l'échelle est en toises. Très belle condition, coloris très frais, exemplaire replié.

Description: Published by Pieter Schenk c. 1700.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Nicolaes Visscher' after 'Pieter Schenk'. Made by an anonymous engraver after 'N. ten Have'. The Visscher family were art and map dealers in Amsterdam during the 17th century. Funded by C. J. Visscher (1587-1652), the business was continued by his son and grandson both named Nicolas. Nicolas Visscher I was born 1618 in Wenns, Austria. He died 1679 in Linz. After the death of Nicolas II, his widow passed the business to Pieter Schenk. Pieter Schenk / Petrus Schenck ( 1660-1718/19) was born in Germany, but settled in Amsterdam where he first became a pupil of Gerard Valck, the engraver. In 1687 he married Valck's sister and thereafter the Schenk and Valck families were active over a long period with a wide range of interests as print sellers, publishers of books, maps, topographical and architectural drawings and globes. Although they produced some original maps, most of their atlases consisted of printings from revised and re-worked plates originally by Jansson, the Visschers, the Sansons and others.
