Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam, 1662. Rare seachart by Jacobsz Theunis of the North Atlantic, showing prominent Greenland, Iceland and parts of the North American continent. The map is decorated with a large figurative title cartouche in the upper center, as well with compass roses, ships and an allegoric ornated decorative milage scale. ‘Derived from the Goos, 1650, this chart’s progenitor was actually by his father, Theunis Jacobsz, c. 1649. Centred on the North Atlantic, it concentrated on providing information on the approaches to the North West Passage. Terra Nova is omiited as it was on the Goos. At first Jacob adopted his father’s name, being known as Jacob Theunisz. Later with his brother, Caspar, in association, they applied the noun Lootsman to their name to avoid confusion . . In 1666 Jacob Lootsman published the first known edition of the Nieuwe Water-Werelt, Ofte Zee-Atlas, which also encluded this map.’ -Burden #372. A strong impression in excellent condition. 426 by 533mm (16¾ by 21 inches). [Attributes: First Edition]
