Genuine Antique Map


Maker: Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius


Antique uncolored map of part of France, by Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius, c. 1630-1639. The map shows  part of the Lorraine between Toul, Ebersweiler, L'Estraye and La Mothe and including Nancy, Luneville and Remirmont. Shows an enormous amount of place names, small villages and towns, as well as topography pictorially with mountains and trees. This map uses an old spelling "boys" for the French word "bois" meaning woods. In the 1630s Johannes Janssonius formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Very good restored condition, map has been cleaned, deacidified, and the center where the fold was has been backed (thus repairing some small seam separations). Some minor signs of age remain, including mild stains and slight waviness of the antique paper. Measures approx. 14.75 x 19.5 inches to the neatline.
