Descripción:

Während des 16. Jahrhunderts explodierte förmlich das Wissen in Europa - die neu allenthalben aufziehende Ratio des aufgeklärten Renaissance-Menschen verabschiedete das Mittelalter in Künsten und Wissenschaften nun endgültig. In diese Zeit fällt der in der British Library verwahrte »Atlas der Queen Mary«, der im Jahr 1555 als Geschenk für Ihren Gemahl Philip II von Spanien in Auftrag gegeben worden. Dieser hegte großen Appetit auf Karten jeglicher Art und war ein ausgezeichneter Kenner der Materie. Sie beauftragten den angesehnsten Kartografen ihrer Zeit, den Portugiesen Diogo Homem, das Projekt umzusetzen. Entstanden ist eines der schönsten überlieferten Kartenwerke überhaupt, ein einmaliges historisches Dokument und ein bibliophiles Ausnahmestück. Ausgehend von der maritimen Weltmachtstellung Spaniens und Englands ist der Atlas ein beachtliches Werk der Kartenherstellung. Hier trifft sich die »Neue Welt« mit den Relikten einer fantastischen auf Unkenntnis beruhenden Auffassung: neben den akkurat verzeichneten Landdaten schwimmen Seeungeheuer in unbekannten Gewässern, herrschen legendäre afrikanische Könige. Doch die verzeichneten geografischen Realitäten und die Fortschritte in der Kartografie dieser Zeit machen den außerordentlichen Reiz des »Atlas der Queen Mary« aus. In scharlachrotes, italienisches Kalbsleder gebunden, kommt das Prachtstück gemeinsam mit einem separat gebundenen Kommentarband in einer archivbeständigen Schachtel. (Text englisch) 12 doppelseitige Karten im Format 78 x 56 cm, montiert auf Schutzkarton, Kalbsleder mit schwarz-goldener Prägung, limitiert (1000 Expl. weltweit). N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Folio Society, London, 2007. Hardback. Estado de conservación: Fine. First Thus. 2007 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Bound in full-grain calf leather. Binding design by David Eccles, featuring the conjoined arms of England and Spain. 12 double-page maps and charts, each measuring 31" x 22½". Each map mounted on a 'guard', so that it opens absolutely flat. Specially commissioned commentary volume by Peter Barber, bound in full buckram. Supplied in a solander box bound in buckram with inset leather spine label. The Queen Mary Atlas is both one of the most beautiful maps ever made and a fascinating historical Document. As we turn the huge pages, we see the world both as it was conceived in the fertile imaginations of the Middle Ages and as it was seen through the eyes of the seafaring explorers of the Renaissance. A prized possession of the British Library, it is without question one of the most important and remarkable manuscripts in the history of map-making. In The Queen Mary Atlas commissioned as a gift for Philip II of Spain from his wife the world is dominated by the great maritime powers of Spain and Portugal. Ships patrol the seas or do battle with rival fleets. Ornate compass roses gesture enigmatically to the East. Flags and coats of arms jostle with pictorial vignettes of major cities and natural landmarks. Islamic banners in North Africa and the Balkans cast a threatening shadow over the borders of Christian Europe. The increasing geographical knowledge of the time is permeated with myths and misconceptions; monstrous creatures swim in uncharted, non-existent waters; legendary African kings rule from the foothills of mountains. But that is part of the great beauty and charm of this remarkable manuscript. Number 665 of a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies. UK Postage £3.10; Airmail to Europe £24.30; Airmail to Rest of the World £108.30. We only use airmail as surface mail can take up to 10 weeks. Nº de ref. de la librería 115368
