At the Old World Auctions which will close on September 14, a rare 1635 World Map by Willem Blaeu will fetch between $20,000 and $24,000. Known as “Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula”, the map is actually a reduction of Blaeu’s larger wall map, created in 1606. The smaller version was colored extensively before being published in 1635 by Willem Blaeu’s son, Joan Blaeu. While keeping the same impressive detail of the map that it was made after, this smaller is more vivid, thanks to its beautiful colors.

Willem Blaeu himself based his map on a 1592 world map By Petrus Plancius and the reduction of the 1635 map was made by Joshua van Ende. This smaller version was introduced in the Atlases of the time.

Potential bidders should know that the 1935 map of the world is still in Grade A condition. It shows allegorical representations of the sun, the moon and the five known planets of the time. It also shows the Seven Wonders of the World, the four seasons and the four elements.1635 World Map by Willem Blaeu for Auction
