Vlaanderen (Flanders), by Pieter Verbiest. 1630

EXTREMELY RARE FLANDERS MAP BY PIETER VERBIEST

The map is surrounded by four decorative borders. The centre of the tio border is occupied by a large view of Dunkirk: Duynkercke, flanked on each side by two smaller town views in oval frames; ; on the left: Ghendt and Brugge; on the right: Oostende and Sluys. Along the lower edge of the map runs a decorative border of six town views in oval frames, flanked by the coats of arms of Flanders: Grevelingen; Ryssell; Douay; Doornick; Aelst; Hulst.
The map is framed on the side borders by four costumed figures.


Pieter Verbiest (Petrus Verbist) and Isaak Verbiest (Isack Verbist)

Pieter Verbiest (Antwerpen, 1607-1674) was an Antwerp cartographer and engraver. Little is known about his life.
One of his most important works is the Novus Tabularum Geographicorum Belgicae (Antwerp, 1636), a pocket atlas of which two more editions were published later (1644 and 1652). Isaak Verbiest, probably a brother of Pieter, drew and engraved certain maps. Their collaboration also led to the production of two rare world maps.

Pieter Verbiest also published folio maps as separate publications. Koeman describes three editions of a Verbiest atlas of the Netherlands, published between 1636 and 1652. Only one copy of each of these atlases is known.
Verbiest-maps, some with beautiful decorative borders with city views, costumed figures and coats of arms, were sometimes bound in composite atlases. Occasionally, copies of these scarce maps come onto the market.
