Description :A finely engraved and decorative mid-18th century map published in Augsburg, Germany.
This map shows the state of early exploration with some of the explorer's routes in the Pacific.
In the title cartouche, there are specimens of exotic birds and flying fish, a hammock, natives (imported slaves?) processing sugar cane and a native chief shaded by an umbrella. Surrounding a descriptive note in the upper left about the New World are Europeans seated at a table, natives kneeling and dropping riches before a crucifix and at top the Virgin Mary with the cross, a chalice and a book.
The map shows California as an island on the Sanson-Homann formula, at the same time giving many coastal sites including San Clemente and Santa Barbara. Many eastern sites in North America are given as well.
Tooley, 91 p.132.
