RENARD, Louis (fl. c.1702-1707) – Reinier OTTENS (1698-1750) and Josua OTTENS (1704-1765). Atlas van Zeevaert en Koophandel door de Geheele Weereldt. Amsterdam: Reinier and Josua Ottens, 1745.

Magnificent, hand-coloured copy of the corrected issue of Renard’s Atlas de la navigation et du commerce (Amsterdam: 1715), which had been printed from plates used for Frederik de Wit’s maritime atlas of c.1675. The firm of R. and J. Ottens produced a French edition in 1739, slightly different from 1715, and then this 1745 edition with Dutch text and careful correction of the plates. Seven new charts appear, including a world map by Edmund Halley (4), maps of the postal routes of Europe (10) and of Greenland (32). Renard's name is no longer found on the plates, and the text is rewritten. Shirley BL II, M.Ren-1c; Koeman IV, Ren 3; Phillips, Atlases 601.

Tall folio (565 x 355mm). Engraved frontispiece, title printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved dedication to the Dutch East India Company, 32 double-page engraved maps with contemporary hand-colouring. Contemporary comb-marbled boards, backed in red roan, uncut (extremities rubbed).
