Paskaarte om Achter Yrlandt om te Zeylen van Hitlant tot aen Heijbat
Amsterdam: Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, 1669. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 19 7/8" x 22 3/4". This handsome sea chart by Pieter Goos depicts Ireland in its entirety, with the north oriented to the right. The chart also extends to parts of Scotland, England, and France. Also prominently featured are rhumb lines, scales, embellished tall ships, an elegant cartouche, and the harp crest for Ireland and the lion crest for Scotland. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with some foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Minor chips along border. Bottom of the center seam is separated. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a classic example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.
