Two rare and very decorative nautical charts of the entire Mediterranean area. The western and eastern part of the Mediterranean printed on two sheets. The seachart of the western part shows the west coast of Spain with the Balearic Islands, the south coast of France with Corsica, Italy with sardines and Sicily, as well as the northwest coast of Africa. The sheet with the eastern part shows Italy with Sicily and Malta, the Balkans, Greece, Asia Minor, the northeast coast of Africa up to the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea with Cyprus.
With two cartouches with Dutch and Latin title on each chart, mileage scales and two compass roses. With five keys of names in which even the smallest islands are listed. German text on verso with description of the Mediterranean.
From the German edition of Atlas Maritimus, which was added to only a few editions of Atlas Novus by Johannes Janssonius. The sea atlas was published in Amsterdam in 1650 under the title Das Fünffte Theil Des Grossen Atlantis, Welches begreiffet Die Wasser-Welt, Das ist: Eine sehr kunstreiche Abbildung und Beschreibung aller Wasser und Meeren, welche den gantzen Erdbodem umgeben, und durch die Schiffarthen dieser zeiten entdecket worden. The map from this atlas are today among the earliest printed nautical charts of the respective region. The sea atlases of Van Keulen, Colom, Lootsman or Goos appeared later in the second half of the 17th Century.
