Title : Mer de Sud ou Pacifique contenant l'Isle de Californe. . ..
Map maker : MORTIER, P..
Date : Amsterdam, 1700.
Size : 23.6 x 29.3 inches. / 60.0 x 74.5 cm.
Colouring : Original o/l colour.

Description :Intriguing map of the Pacific copied from important manuscript maps collected by the Portuguese crown and secreted away in Portuguese archives.
Showing California with indented northern coast using the information from Luke Foxe's map of the region with bays on the northern coast, an array of islands in the Mer Vermeio, and the large Agabela de Gato peninsula shown in the Pacific Northwest. Covering nearly all of North America and a good deal of South America. Destroit d'Anian to north. Agabela de Gato is less pronounced peninsula than seen on other maps.

Early American settlements listed in this map include, St. Augustine, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Plymouth.

Partial outline of Nouvelle Zeelande, Terre des Papous ou Nouvelle Guinee, Antoni van Diemens Land, and Terre d'Eso ou Yedso.

This large scale chart of the Pacific appeared in Mortier's lavish Neptune Francois, which Koeman calls the most expensive sea atlas ever published in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of its kind.
In 1700 Mortier expanded his atlas with the Suite du Neptune François, a group of maps copied by d'Ablancourt from important manuscript maps collected by the Portuguese crown, including this chart of the Pacific.
The appearance of Dutch maps based on Spanish or Portuguese sources was rare, as both countries were notorious for secreting away their geographical knowledge. ¤
Tooley, Australia, page 209, 58: Tooley, California, 64.
Condition : Very slight browning along center fold. Small brown spot above compass rose. Upper margin cut close as issued. Very good, near to mint condition.


ID: 01662
