Accurata totius Archipelagi et Graeciae Universae Tabula
- Amsterdam: F. De Wit, ca. 1680. 17 x 20 3/4 inches. Excellent original color. Some minor stains in margins. Very good condition.A lovely seventeenth century map of the Greece by Frederick de Wit. De Wit followed in the footsteps of the earlier Dutch cartographic publishers Jansson and Blaeu, and like them, he issued maps known for their beautiful engraving and hand coloring. Detail is dense and accurate, with the political regions and islands distinguished by the attractive hand colored borders. This map shows the entire Greek peninsula and the myriad Greek islands, including Crete. An elaborate and highly decorative title cartouche is placed in the lower left corner, with a classical figure surrounded by objects representing the arts and knowledge of the ancients. De Wit siguió los los pasos de los primeros cartógrafos y editores holandeses Jansson y Blaeu, y como ellos, publicó mapas conocidos para sus hermosos grabados y el colorido hecho a mano. Los detalles son densos y exactos, haciendo distinción de las regiones políticas e islas con atractivas fronteras coloreadas. Este mapa muestra la península entera griega y sus islas, incluyendo Creta. Un elaborado título y sumamente decorativa cartela en la esquina inferior izquierda, con una figura clásica rodeada por objetos que representan las artes y el conocimiento de los ancestros.
