COMITATUS LANCASTRENSIS THE COUNTIE PALATINE OF LANCASTER

Code: M3511

Cartographer: JANSSONIUS Johannes

Date: 1636 Amsterdam

Size: 38.5*51 cms

Very rare and stunning map.

A rare example of the pre-atlas issue of Jansson's map of Lanashire, with the vignette of Neptune and an unfinished scale. In the 1630s the rivalry between the publishing house of Jansson and Blaeu was heating up. Both were determined to break into the English market by producing an atlas dedicated to the British Isles. Jansson had finished half-a-dozen plates, including this map, when he realised that Blaeu had introduced a new marketing ploy: armorials of the local nobility to appeal to their vanity. Jansson was quick to copy this idea, re-engraving the completed maps. In this case the title cartouche was removed and replaced by the armorials, and this exceptional vignette of Neptune in his chariot was lost to make way for the new title.

Beautiful full original colour

Excellent condition.
