America noviter delineata

Nice example of Merian's fine early map of America.

The map is derived from Jodocus Hondius' map of 1618. Includes a marvelous peninsular California with the NW Coast of America stretch almost due westward toward Asia, with over 30 place names. Includes an unusual East Coast of North America, packed full of placenames, including Chesapiooc (Chesapeake), Sanawanook, Hatoraske (Hatteras); Charlefort, Cap de S. Roman, etc. Curious bulging Virginia Coastline. No Great Lakes are shown, nor does Long Island appear.

Oversized South America. The Rio Grande flows into the Gulf of California. The 7 cities of Cibola appear on a lake, which is the apparent source of the Rio Grande.

Burden 251.
