The second part includes 16 sea charts covering the Mediterranean sea all of them of the 1682 issue besides the title page has the date 169 . probably 1695. Van Keulen established as printer in Ámsterdam in 1678 and obtained a privilege for 15 years from the States General of Holland to print and publish nautical atlases. Van Keulen collaborated with the geographer Claes Jansz Vooght and Johannes van Luyken. The Zee fackel was printed from 1681-82 onwards and had a tremendous success. These two parts that we offer were included with other three forming a five parts set with over 130 sea charts covering the whole world but many atlases were assembled to order for navigators, traders, merchants with geographical interests in specific áreas. Van Keulen complete atlases are nowadays very rare to find in the book market and in the same way is very unusual to find complete parts like in this case with all maps and text.
