Tabula Islandiae Auctore Georgio Carlo Flanders
J.Hondius Jr / G.Blaeu - Amsterdam - - 49.5 x 37.5 - Coloured - An attractive and detailed map of Iceland. Blaeu's imprint replaces that of Jodocus Hondius who created the plate but did not publish the map in atlas form. An elaborate title cartouche appears in the lower left hand corner of the map courtesy of Joris Carolus, a pilot and map maker from Enkhuizen. This was the only map by Carolus to appear in the Blaeu "Appendix", yet he was responsible for numerous manuscript maps as well as other charts of the northern seas that were later published by Jansson. Latin text to the verso.
