List No 10151.004
Note Description in a cartouche in the bottom right of the globe. 1 map : copperplate engraving on 12 sheets, hand colour. Dates estimated. This circular map filled the right half of Blaeu's enormous world map, which was published under the title 'Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula'. Although undated, the dedication to Gaspar de Bracamonte Guzmán, a Spanish representative at the Treaty of Westphalia, probably places the publication sometime around the conclusion of the treaty in 1648. As new information continued to arrive the map was revised multiple times, producing at least four different states. This is an impression of the first, pulled before Blaeu made major revisions to the depiction of China. As published, Blaeu's two maps were framed in a border filled with smaller terrestrial and astrological maps. Judging from the extant copies, the two hemispheres were often extracted from the map and, in this case, presented as separate sheets. In doing so, however, the compilers of the Klencke Atlas reversed the order in which the hemispheres are presented on Blaeu's sheet, presumably to give precedence to Europe.

Note 1 map : copperplate engraving on 12 sheets, hand colour. Description in a cartouche in the bottom left of the globe. This circular map filled the left half of Blaeu's enormous terrestrial wall map, which was published under the title 'Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula'. Although undated, the dedication to Gaspar de Bracamonte Guzmán, a Spanish representative at the Treaty of Westphalia, probably places the publication sometime around the conclusion of that treaty in 1648. As new geographical information continued to arrive in the Netherlands the map was revised multiple times, resulting in at least four different states. This is an impression of the first, pulled before Blaeu made major revisions to the other half of the plate. As published, Blaeu's two maps were framed in a border filled with smaller terrestrial and astrological maps. The two hemispheres were often extracted and presented as separate sheets, however, and in this case as individual pages of an atlas. In doing so, however, the compilers of the Klencke Atlas reversed the order in which the hemispheres are presented on Blaeu's sheet, presumably to give precedence to Europe.

Note 1 map : copperplate engraving on 6 sheets, hand colour. Dedication to the civic council of Amsterdam in the top left corner, in a small cartouche supporting the city's arms. Cartouche at the left, explaining the methods used to calculate distance. Title at the bottom left, on a tablet surmounted with an allegorical figure of Europe, and flanked at the sides by the reclining gods of the Danube and Rhine, around whom are gathered representatives of various professions, including soldiers, burghers, scholars, sailors, labourers, and, at the right, cartographers. Note on the measurement of longitude at the right, in between an armilliary sphere and a small circular world map (centered on Europe and Africa). Map framed by three country-by-country descriptions of Europe, in Latin (left), Dutch (bottom) and French (right).
