 Comitatus Northumbria Northumberland England -  Joannes Blaeu 1645-1648 Ref. MP-3

 This fine and highly decorative map of Northumberland' in England was published in ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive Atlas Novus - Part IV", Amsterdam, by Joannis and Willem Blaeu, 1645- 1648.  
  The ‘Novus Atlas was initially printed in two volumes, and published in four languages, namely, Dutch, French, Latin and German, but, by 1655, it had developed into six volumes. The map offered above is from a French edition, printed in 1645-1646 ( see the photo of the back of the map showing the French translation).Theatrum Orbis Terrarum  eventually evolved into the magnificent "Atlas Maior", known as one of the most important atlases ever published – and, the most expensive!!
 So great was the name of the Blaeu maps, that the Dutch painter, Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), shows Blaeu’s map of Holland and North Friesland in three of his paintings.                                                                       
 The map, showing a centrefold, remains in relatively good condition. There is some slight ‘foxing’ throughout and a small hole near the top edge of the map (covered by the mount). The page measures roughly 59cm X 49cm and the map itself roughly 50cm x 40cm. A strong plate mark is evident, caused by the pressure exerted on the coppersheet, a good indication that the map is genuine.
