With a Charming Cartouche

Picardy. BLAEU, W. & J. [Amsterdam, 1647]
Picardia Regio Belgica. 15 x 21 inches.
Fine original color; marginal mend, else excellent.


Richly colored map of Picardy in Northern France along the Somme River. Amiens, chief city of the region, is shown. Putti bear a superb coat of arms aloft in the upper right, and the scales are presented in a strapwork frame. The cartouche is flanked by a farmer and his wife, he with a flail and a grain basket, she with a sheaf of wheat, a sickle, and an expression of undisguised fury.
