CONGO REGNUM CHRISTIAN IN AFRICA

Code: M2917

Cartographer: Petrus BERTIUS

Date: 1621 Amsterdam

Size: 10*13.5 cms

Rare and attractive map set in a page of text. Map illustrates the western seashores of Central Africa, surrounded by text in Dutch.Although engraved by Bertius originally this was probably reengraved for the rare book : Wereld Spiegel, waer in vertoontword de Beschryvinge der Rijken Staten, ende vorstendommen des gantsen Aerdbodems, by

Nicolaes de Clerck (de Klerc) who was active as engraver and publisher in Delft from 1599-1621.

The map was engraved by Jodocus Hondius before 1616 and first published in Petrus Bertius' revised pocket atlas Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum Libri septem.. edition of 1616.

According to Peter van der Krogt in Atlantes Neerlandici, volume IIIA, page 442, the plates were used to illustrate some other books with maps, such as Paullus Merula's Cosmographia Generalis, printed in Leiden by Isaac Elsevier and in 1621 for the Wereld Spiegel.Cloppenburch probably had borrowed the plates, since in the 1630s they were in the possession of Willem Jansz. Blaeu, who probably acquired them along with the plates for Jodocus Hondius Jr.'s Appendix. Blaeu used the plates again for the Merula edition of 1635/36. Joan Blaeu used these plates to produce an Atlas Minor without text.
