Maps of Italy from Joan Blaeu's exquisite world atlas of 1665 The finest and most comprehensive baroque atlas was Joan Blaeu's exceptional Atlas Maior, completed in 1665. The original eleven-volume Latin edition, containing 594 maps, put Blaeu ahead of his staunch competitor, mapmaker Joanes Janssonius, whose rivalry inspired Blaeu to produce a grandiose edition of the largest and most complete atlas to date. Covering Arctica, Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, Blaeu's Atlas Maior was a remarkable achievement and remains to this day one of history's finest examples of mapmaking.

This book is so huge, but it has to be to hold so many wonders of the world! The detail and descriptions are fantastically laid out. The case for holding the book is nicely made. You won't be disappointed with this one; just DON'T drop it on your foot!!

This is nothing less than a work of art. Its a comprehensive reproducton of John Blaeu's Atlas of 1665 in the form of a gigantic annotated book. The color reproductions are outstanding. The book is very large and very heavy. Its almost too big for a coffee table book but for people who enjoy history and illustrated maps, there is simply nothing else like it. Its not a 1 for 1 replica of the original 11-volume work. Some maps are reproduced at less than the size of the book to make room for information but they are generally lesser maps. There are other Blaeu reproductions out there, but this is a one of a kind treasure.

Fully Illustrated Study of the Most Artractive Large Atlas Ever Printed
For those of us who love ancient maps and the history of cartography, this book brings us the possibility of having a facsimile of the turning point, master-piece of the golden age of cartography. I'd been looking for this book in my country with no success, I'm very happy to have it in my collection. Regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
