Iudea Seu Terra Sancta Quae Hebraeorum Sive Israelitarum ...
N.Sanson / A.H.Jaillot - Paris - - 83 x 56 - Original colour - Seventeenth-century European cartography had been dominated by the Dutch map and atlas publishers whose work is collectively termed as being from "The Golden Age of Cartography", due to the quality of its presentation, until the works of Frenchmen Sanson and Jaillot. Sanson's mid-century publications formed the basis for subsequent publishers - as here - creating one of the finest series of maps ever published. Sanson's work, although striving for accuracy and scientific presentation, lacked the artistic and decorative elements typifying Dutch output until Alexis Hubert Jaillot's involvement. Jaillot added elaborate title cartouches and mileage scales, amongst other items, to the maps that were published in the "Atlas Nouveau". The title in the cartouche at upper left is joined by a further title (also in French) above the upper neatline. This map of the Holy Land is one of the most impressive from Jaillot's series of publications - the mileage scale is flanked by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. There is light print offsetting but the strong and vibrant colour makes for a particularly decorative map.
