BOURDELOIS, PAYS DEMEDOC, ET DE LA PREVOSTE DE BORN

Code: M3613

Cartographer: JANSSONIUS Johannes

Date: 1631 Amsterdam

Size: 38.5*50.5 cms

Very attractive and important map of Bordeaux, Bayonne and the wine growing area of Bordeaux and Medoc;

Accredited to Hondius and the engraver Evert Symonsz Hambers Veldt which distinguished this map from Blaeu's copy,* But the map was published by Janssnius from 1631.This first state of the plate.

The stunning carouche which takes up most of the bottom half of the map is entwined with vine leaves highlighting even then the global importance of the area for wines and brandy.

Compass rose, galleons and sea monster add to decorative nature. Excellent original colour. Very good condition.

*Henricus Hondius and Johannes Janssonius engaged the engravers Salomon Rogiers and Evert Sijmonsz. Hamersveldt to cut plates similar to the ones sold. This history is rather well-documented by a notary contract, signed on March 2nd, 1630. According to the contract ". . . these 36 copper plates should be ready within eighteen months, should be accurate, finer and better than the maps given to the engravers. . . ."
