Rare map of Northwestern Germany and what would become the Kingdom of Poland, published in Paris by Berey and Tassin.
The map provides exceptional detail, listing the Duches of Prussia (extending to the Couronian Lagoon), Pomerania an Brandenburg, as well as parts of Lithuania, Warzovie, the Kingdom of Poland and most of Silesia.
This is the first time we have seen the map for sale, other than a damaged example offered at auction by Paulus Swaen.
Nicolas Tassin (fl. 1633-55) was appointed 'royal cartographer' at Dijon before setting up as an engraver in Paris where he issued various collections of small maps and plans of France, Switzerland, Germany and Spain. Tassin first published his maps in his own atlas Cartes Generale de Toutes Les Provinces de France in 1634, with an enlarged second edition in 1637 (France, royaumes et provinces d'Europe).
