Date : Amsterdam, 1679.
Size : 16.9 x 21.1 inches. / 43.0 x 53.5 cm.

Description :Rare world map showing California as an island. This map may well have been produced by Nicolaas Visscher II. Geographically it is almost identical to the Visscher-Berchem map of 1658, the only difference being the reduced extent of Anian in the smaller north pole projection at the center top.
The surrounding decoration is however quite different from Visscher's earlier map. In the corners are vivid scenes showing the various signs of the zodiac accompanied by cherubs and other heavenly figures.
Shirley, World 486.
Condition : Full colour, carefully restored at lower part centerfold. Discolouration of margins. Generally in good condition.
