A rare cartographic work showing the coastlines of Iceland as they would appear from a ship at sea. The map title and descriptions of the coat are all done in Islandic language, making this map even more unique among other maps of Iceland.

This engraving contains elevations of Iceland from a variety of positions offshore, thus depicting the rugged topography of part of the west/southwest side of the island, with its active volcano Mount Hekla included. Two insets below the elevations depict inhabited regions of the island with pictorial representations of houses and churches where they are situated along the south coast.

Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) was a Dutch cartographer known for his influential nautical and maritime atlases. Based in Amsterdam, he produced books and maps that described travel itineraries and aided in sea navigation. 

Condition: Map is in A condition with superb hand coloring. Paper has thinned some at top left, but is most noticeable when held to the light. Margins are complete but narrow on the right. A very pleasing example.
