Nieuwe caerte van de Veluwe, Betuwe, Gelderlandt, ende andere omligghende provincien, als Hollandt, Utrecht, Zutphen, &c.Antwerp, Johannes Galle, [ca. 1633/53]. Engraved map in two sheets (together 76 x 41 cm) with separate engraved scale of ca. 1:360,000 (9 x 19 cm, pasted on a larger slip impressed with the title). In a modern frame (107.5 x 60 cm).
Schilder, "Een merkwaardige 16e-eeuwse kaart…", in: Caert-thresoor VI (1987), p. 53 ("only known copy", namely the present copy); for the Theodoor Galle version of the "Nieuwe caerte": Schilder, MCN II, pp. 155-157 (2 copies); Schilder, "Een merkwaardige 16e-eeuwse kaart…", in: Caert-thresoor VI (1987), pp. 49-53; for the Galle-Vrients map of the whole Low Countries: Schilder, MCN II, pp. 138-160; Van der Heijden I, 22. Only copy located of a two-sheet map of the Middle Netherlands in its second state, published by Johannes Galle between 1633 and 1653. The three copperplates used to print the map originally formed part of a set of twelve plates used to print a map of the entire Low Countries (Northern and Southern Netherlands). That map, one of the earliest of the complete Low Countries, was engraved and printed by Philips Galle (1537-1612), a Haarlem-born engraver based in Antwerp, but no copy is known to survive with the map plates in their first state. Several copies exist of a 1605 reprint of the map from the original plates by the publisher Joan Baptista Vrients (1552-1612). After Vrients's death, Jan Moretus (1543-1610), head of the Officina Plantinian, bought the copperplates. Philips Galle's son Theodoor (1571-1633) was also Moretus's son-in-law and therefore had ready access to the copperplates. He used three of them to publish the first edition of the present Nieuwe caerte .Sometime after Theodoor's 1633 death, his son Johannes (1600-1676) reprinted the map of the Middle-Netherlands, copying the letterpress title and changing only the imprint. The state of the plates is therefore otherwise identical to those in the map as published by Theodoor: printed from the 1578-plates with the minor alterations to 1612. Johannes Galle also published an edition of the complete map (ca. 1653) with several new ships added in the Zuiderzee. Since these ships are absent in his present edition of the Nieuwe caerte , we date it before those alterations.With a few spots.
