EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures the intricate front page of Van Keulen's maritime atlas, a true masterpiece from the 17th century. The illustration features Neptune and the personification of the continents gathered around a celestial globe and maritime atlas, symbolizing unity and exploration. The zodiac signs and wind directions are depicted above them, adding to the mystical allure of this artwork. Created by Jan Luyken in 1682, this etching in colors showcases the meticulous detail and craftsmanship of that era. The title proudly proclaims that the maps within show maritime coastlines with precise longitudes, latitudes, and plans based on Dutch and British navigators' knowledge. The allegorical representation of Africa, Asia, America (continent), along with various animals like camels adds depth to this piece. The crown hovering above signifies power and authority while emphasizing the importance of navigation during that time period. Overall, this front page is not just a map but a work of art that tells a story about global exploration and discovery. It serves as a reminder of our rich maritime history and inspires us to continue exploring new horizons both physically and metaphorically.
