America Aurea Pars Altera Mundi Auctoribus Gerardo et Leonardo Valk  (California as an Island)

Decorative example of this striking map of America, showing California as an Island based upon the Second Sanson Model, published by the Valk family.

Terrae Esonis and Fretum Anian shown in the Northwest. Intriguing detail in the interior. Mississippi River shown well west of its true location. Interesting depiction of the Great Lakes and topography of California and the Transmississippi West. Hint of a Northwest passage. A strong dark impression of this scarce map.

Ornate decorative cartouche shows Indians, Alligator and other flora and fauna.

The map is very rare on the market. We note only 1 example offered in a dealer catalogue in the past 30 years (Arkway Catalog XXXIX, 1992).

McLaughlin 176, Wagner 496, Tooley 68, Leighly 134 (Plate XIX).
