The Danube, W. J. Blaeu c.1646
The Danube by W. J. Blaeu
River Danube, Blaeu c.1646
DANBIUS FLUVIUS EUROPAE AXIMUS A FONTIBUS AS OSTIA Cum omnibis Fluminibis, ab utroque latere, in illum desfluentibus A most impressive large engraved map of the River Danube from its source too the Black Sea with its various tributaries. A large decorative pictorial title cartouche with the Austrian emperor Ferdinand III and the Turkish sultan. In the bottom left hand corner is a large pictorial cartouche showing the scales with allegorical figures pouring water into the source of the Danube. Printed on two sheets and joined. 38 x 16 inches. Suberb early outline and wash hand colouring. I think that the top blang margin must have been wormed at sometime in the past and has been replaced with a strip pasted on. This has some traces of gum on the out edges. In the top printed border there are tiny traces of the worming near the numbers 37, 45 and 51. Worm hold in the blank area to the right of the title cartouche and two by the figure of the emperor. Otherwise the map is in good condition. Plain on verso with original centre fold and two other original vertical folds.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
