Description

Large, old coloured engraving of a warship by Johann Baptist Homann. Published around 1720 in Nuremberg. Shows a three-master battleship with dinghies in the centre, below the cross section of the very detailed interior together with a key. Surrounded by 17 diagrams of various ship types and navigation instruments, including an admiral ship and a ship's compass.

The impressive leaf was occasionally bound to the great atlas of Homann Atlas novus terrarum orbis imperia regna et status exactis tabulis geographice demonstrans, but is quite rare to find.

Cartographer

Johann Baptist Homann was born 1664 in Oberkammlach. He founded his business 1702 in Nuremberg, Germany. After a long period of Dutch domination in map publishing, the Homann publishing house became the most important map and atlas producer in Germany. He became a member of the Academy of Science in Berlin just after he published his first atlas in 1707. After his death 1724 in Nuremberg, the company was continued by his son Johann Christoph. The publishing firm was bequeathed to his heirs after his death in 1730 and was traded under the name Homann Heirs until the next century.
