Description

Extremely rare separately issued map by Gerard Van Keulen, the third state of Johannes de Ram's map of the same title, published in 1690 (and much rarer than the 1st 2 De Ram maps).

The present example was part of the remnants of a Composite atlas of maps which was apparently assembled by Gerard Van Keulen in the early part of the 18th Century and included a few other extremely rare Van Keulen maps and a title page with Van Keulen's imprint.

We note only one reference to the map, which is listed as map #13 in a book entitled: Senieji Lietuvos žem?lapiai = Old Maps of Lithuania = Alte Landkarten Litauens: iš Vilniaus universiteto bibliotekos rinkini? / sudar?, aprašus pareng? Alma Brazi?nien?, Vilnius: Vaga, 1999. In addition, we believe the map also appeared in Paulus Swaen: Catalog 1986-1, A Selection of 700 Fine and Decorative Maps and Views, which listed the map as unrecorded.
