    De Zee Custen van Ruslant, Laplant, Finmarcken, Spitsbergen en Nova Zemla by GOOS, Pieter

    Amsterdam, 1669. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5" x 21.5". This rare sea chart by Pieter Goos shows the coasts of Russia and Finland with north oriented to the right. The islands of Spitsbergen and the tip of Novaya Zemlya are also visible. An inset map, oriented with north to the lower right, shows the River Dvina as it flows through the city of Arkhangelsk (Archangel), the chief seaport of Russia at the time. In addition to ports, the map includes topographical features, soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Around Spitsbergen particularly are detailed demarcations of safe anchorage points and whaling stations from when the islands were used as a whaling base. The map also features rhumb lines, scales, and embellished compass roses. A figured title cartouche adorned with scrollwork and feathers shows inhabitants and wildlife of the region. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas, Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting, particularly of the cartouche. Very few chips and tears. Pieter Goos (1616-75) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly-explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa. His "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos' high-quality, visually appealing sea charts.

    Norway by WALKER & BOUTALL, MORRIS, William, MAGNUSSON, Eiríkr

    London: Bernard Quaritch, 1893. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 19.25 x 22.5". This elegant map depicts Norway in beautiful detail. Cities and towns are labeled as are counties and territories with borders depicted. Rivers and fjords are also noted throughout and the waters of the Norwegian Sea and the North Sea are carefully rendered. The larger portion of Norway, from the North Sea to Leka is shown as a large map with the continuation northwards depicted in an inset in the top left. Scale in Norse miles and English miles. Maps from the 19th century that exclusively feature Norway are usually hard to find as Norway and Sweden were almost always grouped together in maps from this period, making this a scarce find. This map by Walker & Boutall was issued as part of "The stories of the kings of Norway called the Round world (Heimskringla)". Originally written in the early 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, the book was edited from the Icelandic by William Morris and Eiríkr Magnússon and published in 1893 by Bernard Quaritch. The map is in good condition with some wear along the original folds and minor foxing. Map is flattened and lined with archival tissue for stability.
