Rare and very decorative map of East Frisia (Ostfriesland) by Ubbo Emmius. Showing the North Sea coast of Friesland between Dollart and the Jade Bay with Emden, Leer and the East Frisian islands of Juist, Norderney, Baltrum, Langeoog, Spiekeroog and Wangerooge. Richly decorated with sea monsters, numerous sailing ships and a large compass rose. At the bottom left a plan of Emden.
The fourth state of the original plate by Ubbo Emmius, which was first taken over by Cornelis Claesz and published unchanged. After his death in 1609, Pieter van den Keere (Kaerius) acquired the plate, revised the name and sold a few separate published prints of it. The plate was too large for inclusion in his famous Atlas Germania inferior, so he cut it at the bottom and left and replaced the two text cartouches with a figural cartouche. Our example comes from the last edition of the atlas with Latin text on the verso, published in 1622.
