Map of Holland engraved by van Loon, with an allegorical cartouche featuring Neptune in his sea-chariot, with a vignette sea-battle. The scale cartouche bottom right has an inset map of Leige marking Maastrict.
Coronelli (1650-1718), a Minorite friar, was official cartographer to both the Republic of Venice and to Louis XIV of France, for whom he made a pair of 3.85 metre diameter globes. Because of this dual interest, many of Coronelli's maps were published by Nolin in Paris, which are generally scarcer than Coronelli's own publications. Engraved by van Loon and first published in 1689, this Africa map pre-dates Coronelli's magnificent two-sheet version by two years.
