|Contextual Notes||Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) was a publisher and founder of his family's publishing firm which lasted for nearly 200 years. In 1678, he set up shop in Amsterdam as a book seller. He later published a sea atlas, "Zee Atlas" in 1680 with text and 38 maps by Claes Jansz. Vooght (fl. 1680-1696). The work was wildly popular and van Keulen printed 9 editions within 5 years. In 1683, he published a set of navigation charts titled "Zee Fakkel." In 1693, he acquired the stock of his competitor, Hendrik Doncker. He retired in 1704, leaving the business to his son, Gerard (1678-1727) (Tooley 351-3; Moreland and Bannister, 118).|
Claes Jansz Vooght (fl. 1680-1696) was a surveyor and mathematics teacher who wrote extensively about navigation. His works include "Nieuwe groote lichtende Zeefakkel" "Flambeau de la Mer" (1691) and Antorcha de la Mar (1695) (Tooley, 643; Moreland and Bannister, 119).
This navigation chart was published in the second volume of van Keulen's "Zee Fakkel" between 1682 and 1695. It was published as plate number 14 (Koeman, 280-1).
Beginning in the sixteenth century, navigation charts of the English Channel began to appear for the first time. Delano-Smith and Kain believe these charts appear in conjunction with an increase in growth of a general awareness of the world, Henry VIII's occupation with his navy, a fear of French invasion in the 1530s and 1540s and increased attention in the use of the sea's resources (153-9). In the seventeenth century, English charts copied earlier maps by Muscovy, Hudson's Bay and East Indies Companies (Delano-Smith and Kain, 159). Source(s): Delano-Smith, Catherine and Roger J. P.
