Priced in US Dollars. "Britannia Prout Divisa fuit Temporibus Anglo-Saxonum, Praesertim Durante Illorum Heptarchia" .  Amsterdam / 1640 circa,  Dimensions 21.5 x 16.5 inches .   Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prominent Dutch geographer and publisher. Born the son of a herring merchant, Blaeu chose not fish but he delved into mathematics and astronomy as his focus. He studied with the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, with whom he honed his instrument and globe making skills. Blaeu set up shop in Amsterdam, where he sold instruments and globes, published maps, and edited the works of intellectuals like Descartes and Hugo Grotius. In 1635, he released his atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive, Atlas novus.  Guaranteed to be over 350 years old, the paper creases and tears were professionally restored in Washington, DC about 5 years ago.. Nothing was retouched in the hand colored areas. We can provide before and after photos .
