The North Pole.

The North Pole and the adjacent Arctic lands Newly and Accurately Described. Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi The North Pole and the adjacent Arctic lands Newly and Accurately Described. "Novi et Acurata Poli Arctici et terrarum Circum Iacentium Descriptio." Amsterdam Schenk, Petri & Valk Gerardi c1700
Copper engraved map of the Arctic, the North Pole and adjacent lands from Schenk And Valk's " Atlas Contractus." Original full wash colour; verso blank
The map from the plate by Janssonius was originally published in 1637, eventually replaced Hondius' map of the North Pole and became the prototype for many later maps including those of Blaeu.
Rhumb lines radiate from the North Pole and several compass roses and ships embellish the chart. A large title cartouche, with two figures and numerous wind heads, conveniently hides the northwest coast of America. Small cartouche depicting men, a polar bear and foxes at lower right with the imprint of Schenk and Valk.
Fifth state of the plate with Nova Zembla connected to the mainland with a land bridge and the completed coastline of Spitzbergen . Good impression with bright colour; generally clean; a few spots to blank margins; short centre old split at lower margin [approx 20mm backed with archival tape].
The maps of Schenk and Valk are famous for their full wash colour , however often the pigments, particularly in the greens deteriorated leading to browning and eventually could cause the paper to crack, for this reason it is unusual to see such bright original colour.

Cartographic Curiosity: the House of Eberhard Ludwig of Württemburg & Teck

Genealogical tree of the House of Eberhard Ludwig of Würtenburg & Teck. SEUTTER MATTHÄUS Genealogical tree of the House of Eberhard Ludwig of Würtenburg & Teck. "Dem Durchlaughteigsten Fürsten ubd Herrn, Herrn Eberhard Ludwig, Herzogen zu Würtenburg und Teck Grafen zu Mömpelgard, herrn zu Hiidenheim etc .etc...." Augsburg SEUTTER MATTHÄUS 1734
Copper engraved genealogical plate by Matthaus Seutter from his " Grosser Atlas," Original full colour; verso blank.
The image shows a Genealogical tree with a reclining figure below; to the right a vine grows to form the title cartouche, below which sit two allagorical female figureswith a hop garden in the background, surounding them a hunters spoils and geometrical instruments. To the left on the hide of a deer details of the genealogyof the duchy of Würtemburg and Teck
The image portrayed by Seutter reflects what we know of Eberhard Ludwig: he became Duke in 1683 at the age of 16, and showed no excessive interest in governmental affairs. Eberhard Ludwig was described by his contemporaries as superficial and easily influenced. Most importantly, his behavior led to the political fate of the land being greatly decided by his council. The duke preferred hunting and left the administration of his county in the hands his advisors.
Seutter therefore seems to be commenting on the Duke as well as giving the family tree. Dark impression; slight browning at centrefold ; showthrough from verso of old ink nu.mber.
