Rare separately published map of America, based upon Jodocus Hondius' map of 1618.
The map is a reduced edition of the Bertius/ Tavnernier Map of 1627, without embellishments. A definite northwest coast of America is shown, unlike the Hondius derivative of the map. A highly detailed and interesting 17th Century map of America, retaining much of the interesting early colonial details of the earliest French, Dutch, Spanish and English discoveries. No Great Lakes.
Interesting peninsular California, with many place names listed. Curious configuration of the East Coast, with many of early place names. Primitive configuration of the Mississippi River and Gulf Coast, with a massive indentation between Florida and the mouth of the Mississippi. Many early mythical features retained. Oddly configured South Africa, with vignettes within the map. Projections of North and South Pole are largely fanciful. A bit of Terra Incognita appears.
A nice example of this rare map. Only one example offered in a dealer catalogue in the past 20 years (Jonathan Potter, 1996).
