LOOTSMAN, Theunisz Jacobsz. [A scarce chart of the White Sea]
Pascaerte van de Mont van de Witte Zee tot aem de Rivier van Archangel. 't Amsterdam By Jacob Theunisz op 't water in de Lootsman. Amsterdam, 1676. Original colour. 440 x 550mm. Repairs to edges.
The mouth of the White Sea in northern Russia, orientated with north to the right, with two insets: 'Swetenoes' (Svyatoy Nos, on the Barents Sea coast of Russian Lapland) & 'De Eylanden van Lombascho' (Ostrov Lumbovskiy, nearby). At the time Archangel was the most important Russian port, but closed for much of the winter. For this reason Peter the Great founded his new capital city, St Petersburg, allowing access to the Baltic. Although their family name was Jacobsz, they used Lootsman to distance themselves from another printer.
