Very scarce engraved sea chart of the Western Mediterranean, published by Johannes van Loon, one of the more enigmatic publishers of the golden age of Dutch chartmaking.
The chart extends from Tunisia and western Italy in the west, to Turkey, Cyprus, and the Holy Land in the east.
In this state, Van Loon's address "op de S. Lucia burgwal in 't Sloterdycks steegje." This likely dates to his partnership with Van Waesberg, but before the plates were sold to Lootsman, resulting in his name being deleted complete.
Old, somewhat muddled hand-coloring. Wide margins.
