Title : Virginiae item et Floridae..
Map maker : MERCATOR, G./ HONDIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1630.
Size : 13.4 x 19.1 inches. / 34.0 x 48.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :Cummings describes it as one of the most beautifully executed maps ever made of the Southeast. In detail and in general conception it surpasses all earlier maps of the region . It was first published in 1606. Hondius drew on various sources for his map: John White's map which was the first to present Virginia on its own: Le Moyne, who drew not only on the information of the French explorers, but also on the Indians which was, at times, notoriously unreliable. He also drew on Ortelius and Wytfliet.
This cartographic compromise led to the continuation of some misconceptions: the north westerly flow of the River May and the placing of a great lake at its source was a mistake that was to last for well over one hundred years. Many European cartographers followed this map, sometimes increasing its errors without adding to its good qualities.
Very attractive, from the rare English text edition.

Koeman/Krogt, Atlantes Neerlandici, 9400:1A.
Condition : In very good condition. Wide margins, good impression. Right hand margin re-inforced due to some paper loss, else fine.
Some shine thru of letterpress of verso. With English text on verso.

ID: 00721
