Highly decorative, Joan Blaeu’s (1599 – 1673) “Map of the World” exemplifies the flamboyant artistic skills that made him the 17th century’s premier mapmaker. Filling the void left by the death of renowned cartographer Jodocus Hondius II, Blaeu created an extraordinary, multi-volume world atlas published in six languages, which contained 3,000 pages of text and 600 maps. “Map of the World” typifies the exceptional engraving, colors and typography which transformed Blaeu’s maps into works of art.
