GOOS, Pieter (1615-1675). The Sea-Atlas or the Watter-World, Wherein described all the sea coass of the knowne world. Amsterdam: to be sold at his ship upon the Texel Keey near to the Sparendamer bridge, 1670. 2°(445 x 300mm). Hand-coloured engraved title, 4pp letterpress description, 40 hand-coloured double-page engraved sea charts, all on thick paper, one folding (some light discolouration on the verso of the map sheets, several shaved close to margin, section of lower margin of title restored.) Contemporary mottled calf, corners rubbed, joints slightly cracked. Provenance: Joseph Henderson (signed centre on title page; William Fitzgerald (inscription gift from Henderson to Fitzgerald 1st June 1711). A FINE COPY OF THIS VERY RARE SEA ATLAS published for English merchants and mariners. This is the last of four English editions of the Zee-Atlas, published in 1667, 1668, 1669 and 1670. Koeman records four copies of this atlas, one incomplete; of the other three editions, only four copies are noted. Goos's sea atlas followed on from the atlases of Jansson in 1650 and Colom in 1654, this sea atlas developing from Goos's pilot guide or Zeespiegel which he first published in 1650. Throughout the publishing history of the Zee-atlas the number of charts remained constant at 40 or 41, unlike many of his competitors' atlases who added to the number of maps as new information became available, suggesting that this atlas was issued for the gentleman rather than the mariner. Koeman Goos 8 (listing 3 copies).
