Description:

Finely engraved sea chart of the Portugese coastline, centered on Lisbon, which appeared in Johannes Janssonius's Her Licht der Zeevaert or Le Flambeau de la Navigation, first published in 1620.

Jansson's sea atlas is a copy of Blaeu's Atlas of the same title, first published in 1608.  When the Blaeu copyrights expired, Jansson created his own work, consisting of 40 oblong sea charts.

Engraved by Petrus Bertius, the chart is oriented with east at the top and shows coast of Portugal from Peniche and Berlengas in the north to Sagres, Lagos and just beyond Portimao.

The present chart is a near identical copy of the Blaeu's chart, with only slight modification to the spelling of the last few words in the French title and also minor changes to the decorative cartouche and contents of the chart.

The charts for this atlas are titled in both Dutch and French and are extremely rare.   This is the only example of the chart we have seen on the market in more than 20 years.
