Daniae Regni Typum
A beautiful and rare carte-à-figures was published by Janssonius in 1630. The map was engraved mainly after John Speed’s 1626 map of Denmark by Abraham Goos, who signed as engraver above the cartouche in the lower right corner; the decorative borders were etched in Visscher’s workshop. It shows modern day Denmark, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburgh, southern Sweden and Bornholm.
The top border shows the royal coat of arms flanked by oval views of “Coppenhagen”, “Elsenor”, ”Lantskroon” and “Ripen” together with circular portraits of “Christianus IV.” and “Freder. Christian.. Christiani IIII. Filius”, in the bottom border a portrait of Tycho Brahe is flanked by oval views of “Sleswyck”, “Hamburgh”, “Lubeck”, “Oldenburgh” and circular views of “Croneburgum” and “Uraniburgum”. The left and right borders show figures in contemporary dress.
Engraved by Kaerius and dedicated to Christian IV, King of Denmark
