Magnus Ducatus Finlandiae Auct. Andrea Bureo Succo

Nice example of one of the earliest maps of Finland, based upon the work of Anders Bure.

Originally engraved by Jan Jansson, the copperplate was later acquired by Valk & Schenk.

The Valk & Schenk edition is by far the more scarce edition of the map.

Anders Bure was one of the earliest Swedish map makers and was active as early as about 1600. His work included a 6 sheet wall map of Scandinavia, published in 1626. Bure was appointed General Mathematician of Sweden in 1628, during which time he laid the ground work for the Swedish National Survey, for which he served as the first director.

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.
