Blaeu’s Map of the British IslesSKU: 7617
Magnae Britaniae et Hiberniae Tabula
First published in 1631, this map of the British Isles became the Blaeu firm’s principal one for twenty years. The Blaeu firm was official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company (VOC), and Blaeu globes were carried on all VOC vessels; its map-making was of the highest quality at a time when the Low Countries were at the forefront of the international market.
