1683 William Berry (mapmaker/publisher): "Poland Subdivided according to the
Extent of its severall Palatinates ...Dedicated To the most serene and most sacred
majesty of Charles II...," London, 53.2 x 85.3 cm. Described on the map as Berry
correcting/amending Sanson's work, but actually based on Jaillot's reworking of
Sanson's map. The largest map of Poland published at the time. See the Bowles 1744
1683 (dated on Volume 4 of 5 of the first, and French, edition of Allain Manesson Mallet's:
"Description de l'univers..,." published in Paris by Denys Thierry. These three maps are on
consecutive right-hand pages of the copy in the possession of the New York Public Library: the
page numbers make sense, but the "Figure" Roman numerals are out of sequence. Also, the
third map appears to be printed from the same plate as the second map, with the addition of
the phrase "Tome III" on the lower page margin. Why this third map was bound into the atlas,
I can't explain -- but it illustrates the difficulty of accurately identifying the provenance of one
of these maps merely by the plate image.
