London, John Bowles, Thomas Bowles, Philip Overton & John King, c.1730. Original colour with additions. Two sheets conjoined, total 595 x 975mm. Some restoration to binding folds.
Moll's large antique map of Europe, dedicated to Queen Caroline, queen consort of King George II, whose portrait appears in the title/dedication cartouche along with allegorical figures representing the four continents.

Bottom right is an inset map showing the canal built by Peter the Great of Russia enabling boats to cross between the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Azov. There must have been considerable interest from speculators for Moll to have included this.

DE WIT, Frederick. [A very decorative two-sheet 18th Century sea chart of Europe]

De Wit's famous chart of Europe, orientated with north to the right, with two large cartouches and an inset map of the Eastern Mediterranean. After the death of De Wit and his son the chart plates were bought by Louis Renard, who issued them with his own text. He corrected each plate (adding part of the Greenland coast here), apparently intending the atlas to be used at sea. Reiner and Josua Ottens re-issued Renard's atlas in 1739 with a French text, and again in 1745 with a Dutch text and their names added to the plates for the first time. A final edition, published in 1802 by the Widow of G.Hulst van Keulen, ended the long and distinguished career of this plate. KOEMAN: Ren 3.
