 NOUVUS ATLAS SIVE THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM IN QUO MAGNA BRITANNIA SEU ANGLIAE & SCOTIAE NEC NON HIBERNIAE REGNA EXHIBENTUR WILLEM & JOHANNES BLAEU. pars quarta

Amsterdam: Apud Johannes Janssonium, 1646.

A massive and spectacularly bound 22" + elephant folio copy of Joannes Blaeu's 'Atlas of Britain..', bound in period full speckled calf, the spine gilt decorated with seven raised bands and brown morocco title label in gilt, as shown. The piece was published in Amsterdam by Johannes Janssonium in 1647; an early edition of the greatest world atlas ever produced.

The Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Theatre du Monde, in French) marks the intermediary stage in the development of the "greatest and finest atlas ever published" (Koeman). In 1630, Willem Janzzon Blaeu, the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company, published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps. The second expanded edition, with 99 maps, appeared in the following year. Blaeu continued to produce new maps at such a rate that by 1634, he abandoned the single volume format, and announced his intention to publish a new world atlas, entitled the Theatrum. This atlas, which originally incorporated most of the maps from Blaeu's Appendix, was expanded so rapidly that by 1646, it consisted of four volumes with 334 maps. The acclaim that Blaeu's atlas has always received is based primarily upon its extremely high production standards. The quality of the engravings in text, the thick stock paper, and typography are of the highest order, and place it in the first rank among seventeenth century illustrated books. This atlas here, vol IV, originally contained sixty maps, devoted to Great Britain alone. Retained, and as shown, are several engravings of British antiquities interspersed throughout the text, but this particular copy, sadly, has had all of its maps removed. Towering in its impressive original full calf binding, it remains a textament of beauty, even in its shortcomings.

In great shape externally and internally, with little to no external wear and internally only some light browning and foxing throughout, with a few pages detached cleanly. The contents again, sadly, lack the frontispiece, engraved title and all maps / plates;  364pp of text present with jumps in pagination where contents have been removed. Text in Dutch. Measures 21.5" x 14" x 2.75". Good luck!
