"Universe Europæ Maritime Einsque Navigationis Descriptio"
Engraved map, 54x41,5cm Antwerp 1591-92 Published by Jean Bellère and Cornelis Claesz and replaced the "Universe Europe maritime..." from 1584 (see Kunstantikvariat PAMA, March 2011 entry 71 and the chart above). There are several changes to the previous map. The shape of Iceland is very different and more precisely, it extends further north and east to include Italy, the Finnish Bay and parts of The Adriatic sea, Russia and Novaya Zemlya. The chart shows close resemblance with Cornelis Doedsz' depiction of Scandinavia "Tabula hydrographica, tum maris Baltici..." (1589 or later). One of three recorded copies, all in institutions, is in theThe Norwegian National Library. The Doedsz chart was also engraved by the Van Doetecum brothers. Their engraved style is distinctive. They manage to provide incredible detail while maintaining absolute clarity. Our copy is in a strong, black impression with a delicate plate tone.. As commonly seen the left, right and lower margin are trimmed with some loss of the grade scale, the lower is trimmed into the bottom of the map. A fine, small restoration south-west of Iceland. The text verso slightly comes through in the Mediterranean. "Old" Koeman volume IV Wag 9B, William B. Ginsberg "Septentrionalium Regionum" - An Exhibit Oslo 2001, no. 28 - The Scandinavia chart by Doedsz owned by The National Library, Oslo, on loan)
