Jansson, Jan





Copper-engraved map, hand-colored in outline, colored pictorial cartouche & vignettes. 38.5x49.5 cm (15¼x19½).

Interesting and attractive map of Portugal with west at the top, four sailing ships on the ocean along with a large figure of Neptune riding a sea monster, holding a trident and shield. There are two coats-of-arms and two compass roses, and a large pictorial title cartouche featuring two men in what looks to be Arabic dress using navigational instruments. German text on verso.

Lot Amendments

Text on verso slightly visible through the map; expert repairs in right margin and along centerfold, paper a little thin in places; very good.
