A Striking Chart of the North Sea

Denmark/ Norway/ Sweden/ British Isles.. KEULEN, J. VAN [Amsterdam, c. 1690]
Pascaert van Texel tot aen Bergen…. 20 x 23 ¼ inches.
Fine original color; thick double-ply paper as issued, excellent condition.


A very attractive nautical chart of the North Sea, including the eastern coastline of Scotland and northern England, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The attractive cartouche shows a logging scene, alluding to Norway’s timber trade. The Van Keulen firm was a leading supplier of charts, instruments, and maritime related books of uncommon longevity. It remained a family-controlled business until 1823 and then continued to operate under another owner until 1885.

Ginsberg, W. Sea Charts of Norway 1585-1812. 8B.3a; Tooley in MCC 71 part II, 371.
