The Blaeu-van der Hem Atlas, meticulously assembled by Amsterdam-based lawyer Laurens van der Hem between 1662 and 1678, is a monumental achievement in cartography and visual documentation. This extensive collection, inspired by Joan Blaeu's Atlas Major, encompasses over 2000 plates across 50 volumes, offering a comprehensive snapshot of seventeenth-century geography, history, and culture through vivid depictions of ancient cities and landscapes. One of the atlas's highlights is a dedicated volume on Switzerland, featuring the work of Matthäus Merian from Basel.

Each view and engraving, brought to life with the vibrant illustrations by Dirck Jansz van Santen, showcases Switzerland's serene beauty. Van Santen's masterful coloring and the addition of painted landscapes elevate Merian's original engravings, transforming the stark chiaroscuro effects of the copper plates into bright, idyllic scenes that capture the essence of Switzerland's historic landscapes in a form that remains unmatched.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
