Improving Upon A Classic Dutch Double Hemisphere World Map

Striking double hemisphere Dutch bible map published by the Keur family.

The map is embellished with female allegorical figures representing America, Asia, Europe and Africa, based on early maps by Visscher.

After relying upon a Daniel Stoopendahl world map showing California as an island for many years, Jan van Jagen was commissioned to engrave a new plate. Van Jagen utilized updated cartographic information to show California as a peninsula, along with other significant improvements, including the addition of several Pacific islands and a corrected East Asian coastline.

The northwest coast of North America is left completely blank, Australia is partially mapped and there is only a hint of New Zealand. Diagrams of the Copernican and Ptolemaic solar systems rest between the hemispheres.

J. V. Jagen's signature at bottom just left of center.

Rarity

While not rare, the Van Jagen world map is much scarcer than its predecessors by Visscher and Stoopendahl.
