One of the Earliest Detailed Sea Charts of the Baltic Coastline

Finely engraved sea chart Gulf of Finland, extending from St. Petersburg in the east to Estonia and the entire coast of Southern Finland.

The chart appeared in Blaeu's Her Licht der Zeevaert or Le Flambeau de la Navigation, first published in 1608.

The map would later be copied by Jansson in 1620, when the Blaeu copyrights expired.

The chart is oriented with east at the top and includes compass roses and a sailing ship.

The charts for this atlas are titled in both Dutch and French and are extremely rare. This is the only example of the chart we have seen on the market in more than 20 years.
