Old-coloured sea chart, heightened with gold, from Volume 1 of Johannes van Keulen’s atlas of sea charts entitled “De Nieuwe Groote Lichtende Zee-Fackel” first published in Amsterdam in 1680. The atlas proved to be very popular and continued to be published throughout the 18th century, during which time it was expanded to six volumes by his heirs including Gerard, Johannes II and Gerard Hulst. This chart, which is oriented to the south, covers the north coast of Ireland from the island of Arranmore (“I. Aran”) in the west to Olderfleet Castle near Larne (“OldFliet”) in the east. The west coast of Scotland is shown from the isle of Skye and southern Hebrides in the north to Loch Ryan in the south, with the River Clyde and the city of Glasgow (“Glasque”) in the east. The chart is decorated with a title cartouche surrounded by a pastoral scene, compass roses and sailing ships. Blank verso. Other than some minor wormholes and discolouration, a beautifully coloured example in very good condition. 50 cm x 57.5 cm
