Amsterdam 1657 - Splendida pianta della città, per la prima volta inclusa nel Theatrum celebriorum del Janssonius. Incisa da Wenzel Hollar, la carta viene inclusa nel Toonel der vermaarste de van Waesberge del 1682. Successivamente viene in possesso di Pieter Vander Aa, che la include prima nel Theatrum paecipuarum e quindi nel Thesaurus Antiquatatum, edito a Leida dal 1704 al 1723. Esemplare tratto da questa opera, in quarto stato. Incisione in rame, pieghe di carta nella parte inferiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. Dimensioni 420x345. Bibliografia: Pisa, Iconografia a stampa pp. 126-128, 28; Pisa e il suo territorio pp. 39-40, 26 City plan taken from "Theatrum praecipuarum urbium", the famous city-plans book realized by Janssonius after Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitates Orbis Terrarum". The work was published in 1657, with 500 plates depicting cities from all over the world. In opposition to his main competitors, the Blaeus, to realize his project, Janssonius used the plates of former cartographers and publishers. In 1653 he bought from Abraham Hogenberg the plates of the "Civitates orbis Terrarum" which have been then included in his work. As far as Dutch cities, he had new plates realized after Johannes Blaeu's Atlas, published in 1649. The plates in the Fifth Volume, the one about Italy entitled "Theatrum celebriorum urbium Italiae.", Janssonius used the plates realized by Jodocus Hondius for his "Italia Hodierna." in 1627. Unlike Hondius' work, Janssonius' is an in-folio size, with text both on recto and on verso. Copperplates. Very rare. Dimensioni
