600 pages plus 100 pages on CD-ROM. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. MAPS. During almost two centuries from 1685 to 1866 the well-known Dutch map publishing house of Covens & Mortier supplied the then-modern world with maps and atlases. From the late seventeenth century, this company developed rapidly into one of the leading wholesalers in cartographic products. As a result, almost every present-day map lover is familiar with the name Covens & Mortier. Moreover, Covens & Mortier maps can be found in map collections all over the world. There is hardly a cartographic exhibition catalogue to be found in which the name of this Amsterdam firm is not mentioned. Despite this great reputation, until recently, map historians groped in the dark about the exact development, size, and meaning of this publishing house. To what internal and external circumstances did Covens & Mortier owe its great expansion? How did they sell their maps and atlases? In which cartographic areas did innovation take place? What was the firm's position from an international point of view? Thanks to the results of an intensive ten-year research into the publishing activities of Covens & Mortier, these questions can finally be answered. In this richly illustrated book, the definitive research results are presented. Furthermore, an extensive carto-bibliography with original and derivative maps, published by Covens & Mortier, has been added. Volume 8 in the series Utrecht Studies in the History of Cartography, this work comes with a bibliography, indices, and several appendices on CD-ROM, including a genealogy of the families Covens & Mortier, estate inventories, catalogues of maps and copperplates, and references to Covens & Mortier in contemporary periodicals and booksellers' books. Illustrated with nearly 500 full-color images. (Key Words: Covens & Mortier, Maps, Dutch Publishers, Marco van Egmond, Amsterdam, Netherland, Bibliographies, CD-ROMs).
