Louis Renard—Reinier and Josua Ottens
Atlas van Zeevaert en Koophandel door de Geheele Weereldt. Amsterdam: Reinier & Josua Ottens, 1745
Folio (568 x 359mm.), engraved frontispiece, title-page printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved dedication leaf, 30 double-page engraved maps, leaves uncut, contemporary morocco-backed boards, lacking map 1 (world map), map 10 (postal routes of Europe), and final (Zz) text leaf, dampstain and tear to one page of map 26, small holes affecting a few leaves (mostly at margins), binding rubbed
Corrected Dutch edition of this magnificent sea atlas, dedicated to the Dutch East India Company. Since Reinier and Josua Ottens improved nearly all the plates by adding place names and altering coast lines, shoals, and soundings, Renard's name has been effaced from all the maps, and the text has been rewritten.
