Bay of Tanger (Bay of Tangier*, Morocco)
From ‘Joan Blaeu’s original 'Atlas Maior' (Great Atlas) [which] from the 1660s was substantially expanded into something of a personal world geo-encyclopaedia in the following decade by the Amsterdam lawyer, Laurens van der Hem, while continuing a visual style established by Blaeu. The gargantuan ~50 volume series — housed today in the Austrian National Library in Vienna — includes more than 2400 maps, charts, sketches and birds-eye-views of towns, buildings and harbours, seascapes and landscapes’ - Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem on BibliOdyssey
