Title : Nova Orbis Tabula, in Lucem Edita..
Map maker : WIT,F. de..
Date : Amsterdam, ca.1690.
Size : 18.5 x 22.8 inches. / 47.0 x 58.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :This is one of the most attractive double-hemispherical world maps of the late seventeenth century. The corners are filled with images of the seasons, the zodiac, and the elements, all combined within four well-composed vignettes. At top left is a personification of Spring, who also represents Virgo, with the element of Air billowing her robes. The bull of Taurus and the ram of Aries are shown to the right. The top right vignette represents Fall, with the shore in the background including the element Water. A putti holds a crab representing Cancer, and the lion of Leo is held by another. The twins of Gemini flank the inset of the North pole at top. The lower left scene presents summer and Earth with a wine-imbibing Bacchus held aloft by putti, while one of his devotees is dramatically ill in the foreground. The signs for Scorpio and Libra are held by two followers, while Sagittarius gallops in the background. Winter holds court in the final vignette, with the element of Fire shown to the left. Aquarius is represented by a child pouring water, while another holds a fishing pole with the double fish of Pisces, and a goat representing Capricorn is pulled by another.
Shirley, World, 451
Condition : The map has a profesional restauration in the centerfold from bottom to the center of the map, and a few repairs of small cracks in the right undercorner, further in good condition.
