Description
HONDIUS, Henricus (1597-1651). / JANSSONIUS, Johannes (1588-1664). Magni Ducatus Lithuaniae. Engraved map with original hand color.Amsterdam c. 1645.19" x 22 1/2" sheet.Beautiful hand colored map of Lithuania at the nation's greatest size (encompassing Poland, Ukraine and part of Russia), with the right hand side displaying a detailed inset of the Dniepr River. The map also includes the Lithuanian coat of arms, title cartouche, sailing ship and vignettes within the image. The map shares its name with the four sheet map by Hessel Gerritsz on which it is based. Hessel Gerritsz prepared his original map from manuscript drafts prepared under the instructions of Prince Nicolas Christophe Radziwill, and the four sheet map upon which this example is based was first issued in 1613 by Willem Blaeu, under Blaeu's original imprint Guilhelmus Janssonis--one of the earliest maps published by Blaeu.
