Description:

Striking example of the scarce French edition of Waghenaer's sea chart showing the coastlines of Northern Germany and Denmark.

The chart includes the modern cities of  Greifswald, Stalsund, the island of Rugen, Barth, Wismar, Rostock, and Lubeck and Heiligenhafen, along the German Coastline, and Fehmarn, Rodbyhavn, Nysted, and Maribo, in the north.

The chart is richly embellished with compass roses, sea monsters, sailing ships, and rhumb lines. The map appeared in Waghenaer's Speigel der Zeevaerdt. 

Waghenaer's Spiegel was the first engraved sea atlas.  The engraving work of Joannes Doetecum is very much in evidence.
