內容簡介

在古希臘及羅馬時期為了配合軍事和政治成就,地圖的繪製開始發展;十七世紀對於托勒密《地理學》的重視、地理大發現的國家競技開始,印刷技術的普及,造成十五世紀之後,地圖繪製業的空前榮景,當時有許多地圖繪製名家,如Abraham Ortelius、Gerardus Mercator等。本書作者Joan Blaeu更是當時重要的地圖名家之一,他帶動阿姆斯特丹成為重要的製圖中心,甚至當時荷蘭最重要的地圖商就以Joan Blaeu為名。

那個時代的地圖添加了許多華麗裝飾,讓地圖不僅具有實用功能,更增添了藝術上的收藏價值。這本《Atlas Major Of 1662》則以Joan Blaeu公司1665年完成的地圖集為主,涵蓋了歐洲、非洲及亞洲596幅重要的古地圖,從這些地圖中我們不僅可以發現當時人們的世界觀,更可瞭解地圖集的歷史和文化背景、意義。

World class: The finest atlas ever published

Superlatives tend to fail in face of Joan Blaeu's Atlas Major, one of the most extravagant feats in the history of mapmaking. The original Latin edition, completed in 1665, was the largest and most expensive book to be published during the 17th century. Its 594 maps across 11 volumes spanned Arctica, Asia, Europe, and America. Its scale and ambition occupies such an important place in Dutch history that it is included in the Canon of Dutch History, an official survey of 50 individuals, creations, or events that chart the historical development of the Netherlands. 

TASCHEN's meticulous reprint brings this luxurious Baroque wonder into the hands of modern readers. In an age of digitized cartography and global connectivity, it celebrates the steadfast beauty of quality print and restores the wonder of an exploratory age, in which Blaeu s native Amsterdam was a center of international trade and discovery.True to TASCHEN's optimum reproduction standards, the edition derives from the Austrian National Library s complete colored and gold-heightened copy of Atlas Major, assuring the finest detail and quality. University of Amsterdam's Peter van der Krogt introduces the historical and cultural significance of the atlas while providing detailed descriptions for individual maps, revealing the full scale and ambition of Blaeu's masterwork. As much an artwork as a cartographical adventure, the book comes with a slipcase that converts neatly into a display bookstand.
