VIANEN, Jan van. [A striking titlepage from the 'Neptune François' sea-atlas]
Le Neptune François. Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1693. 500 x 365mm. Faint creasing.
The titlepage from the First Part of the 'Neptune François', a sumptuous sea-atlas that Koeman described as 'the most expensive sea-atlas ever published in Amsterdam... intended more as a show piece than something to be used by pilots at sea'. This titlepage features Neptune in a sea-chariot drawn by white horses, mer-people, fleets of ships and allegorical figures of winged gods, all within an ornate border.
