An original antique frontispiece from one of the greatest atlases ever published. This is from the third part of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by J. Blaeu, published in Amsterdam in 1640. The superbly engraved frontispiece is from a Latin text edition of the atlas and includes a celestial and terrestrial globe, two figures representing an astronomer (holding an armillary sphere) and a geographer (holding a rolled map), and several cartographic instruments. The printed area is uncoloured as published and measures approximately 270mm x 400mm with margins beyond; blank verso. Condition report: Overall in excellent condition. There is light toning as is to be expected in 370 year old paper, a small spot in the title area (not really detracting from the overall impression), and a repair in the lower margin outside the plate-mark.
