¤ Thirty coats of arms flank this large-scale map of the island off the coast of Pommeren. Ships, sea monsters, a windrose and a decorative cartouche. The map is quite detailed, showing houses of noblemen, as well as town and cities. Extremely rare first edition. Jodocus Hondius Jr. planned to produce a new modern atlas less dependent on the Mercator plates that his father had acquired in 1604. It would make sense that he considered putting together 'ad hoc collections' of the maps already cut to stimulate further interest. According to van der Krogt "only six of these collections are known today. One of them has a letterpress title "Atlantis Maioris Appendix" and was made up by Jodocus or his widow in mid 1629 to be displayed in the autumn of 1629 at the Frankfurt book fair as a continuation of the great Mercator atlas. On Jodocus death on August 18, 1629, this among 39 other Hondius copper plates were purchased by Willem Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint. Blaeu published immediately 34 of them as part of his first atlas. This is the rare first state of which Peter van der Krogt list only 5 other copies in his updated Atlantes Neerlandici. Collecters item of great importance!. - Koeman/v.d.Krogt, Atlantes Neerlandici, vol.1, p 125-127.

¤ Showing "Palais de Visendic" and Royal academy for painting and sculpture in Vienna.
J. Chereau was a publisher of optical prints, established in Paris, rue St.Jacques.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries there were many popular specialty establishments in Paris, Augsburg and London which produced optical viewing devices and special engravings to be viewed through them. In the 18th century the optical print or vue optique came into existence, whose exaggerated converging lines were intended to produce the optical illusion of deep recession. The viewing devices for which these perspective prints were produced consisted of a lens and a mirror, this requiring the use of reversed or mirror-image pictures.
