Frans Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century.

    Nouvelle Carte Du Roiaume D'Alger Divisee En Toutes Ses Provinces, Avec Une partie Due Cotes D'Espagne by OTTENS, Reiner and Josua

    Amsterdam. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand-coloring. Image measures 17" x 21.5". This scarce map of Algeria and its vicinity includes the Western Mediterranean, part of North Africa, and part of Spain around Alicante. Published circa 1740, the map extends from the Moulouya River in present-day Morocco to Tabarka in Tunisia, and south to the Saharan Atlas. The map also includes a large inset in the lower left of the Bay of Alger (El-Jazir). Beautifully details the Barbary Coast which was at the time known for the Barbary Pirates, who for centuries, terrorized the Western Mediterranean. Richly engraved mountains decrease in size perspectivally as they near the Mediterranean, which takes up the top part of the map. Two decorative compass roses in the sea are attached by rhumblines. The map is in good condition and lined to support original color wash, with minor wear to the edges. Centerfold repaired on verso. Minor foxing, especially along margins. Reiner and Josua Ottens (1698-1750 and 1704-1765) took over their father's map-making business in 1725. They were known best for producing enormous made-to-order map collections, including copies of almost all maps available at the time. This map is a good example of their work.
