An attractive map of Monmouth and the mouth of the River Severn. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) is one of the most famous of the Dutch cartographers. The fourth volume of his ‘Novus Atlas’ first published in 1645 focused on England and Wales. Blaeu established his firm in 1599 as instrument and globe makers. He went on to produce some of the highest quality atlases ever published. This very decorative map of Pembroke is from the German text edition of 1645, it was re-issued in 1646, 1647, and 1648 with the same text setting. Provenance: acquired from Doreen Green 1988. Booth (1977) pp. 44-8; Koeman Bl 47A 339; Van der Krogt, P. (Atlantes) 5560:2; Skelton (1970) 28.
