RVGIA | INSVLA AC DVCATVS, Willem Jansz. Blaeu (1631) At the time Willem Jansz. Blaeu (1571-1638) first published his map of the Baltic island of Rügen in 1631 it formed part of Pommern; when this reissue appeared thirty years later it had become part of Sweden. For this map, Blaeu used information of the wall map of Pommern by Eilhard Lubin (1565-1621). The coats of arms are those of the island's leading families.
