La Riviere de la Garomne et la Dordogne et le Pays aux environs de Bourdeaux (with plan of Bourdeaux)

Rare map of Map of the Gironde estuary, published in Amsterdam by Schenk & Valk.

The map shows the area where the Dordogne and Garonne rivers meet, and includes a plan of the fortified walls of the city of Bordeaux, along with several elaborate cartouches.

The map was first issued by Jansson in about 1675 and re-issued by Schenk & Valk several decades later.

Rarity

The map is very rare on the market. We have not found another example offered for sale.

Peter Schenk the Elder (1660-1711) moved to Amsterdam in 1675 and began to learn the art of mezzotint. In 1694 he bought some of the copperplate stock of the mapmaker Johannes Janssonius, which allowed him to specialize in the engraving and printing of maps and prints. He split his time between his Amsterdam shop and Leipzig and also sold a considerable volume of materials to London.

Peter Schenk the Elder had three sons. Peter the Younger carried on his father’s business in Leipzig while the other two, Leonard and Jan, worked in Amsterdam. Leonard engraved several maps and also carried on his father’s relationship with engraving plates for the Amsterdam edition of the Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences.
