Title : AMERICA.
Map maker : HONDIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, (1606) 1630.
Size : 14.8 x 19.7 inches. / 37.5 x 50.0 cm.
Colouring : Attractively coloured.

Description :A spectacular map of the Americas at the beginning of European settlement in North America. This map provides considerable, interesting detail on European knowledge and misinformation of the New World: the Amazon and the River de la Plata both begin from a common lake in the interior of South America; the Great Lakes are not identified; North America has the elongated northern part; the east coast of the present day United States has an overly enlarged bay; and, there is a flat New England coastline.
Croatoan on the Outer Banks of the Carolinas is shown, as is the Chesapeake Bay (Chesepiook). There is a legend at the upper right pointing to a possible link between Davis Strait in Canada and Aman Fretum (present-day Bering Strait). The Spanish possessions in the Caribbean, Central America and South America are prominently displayed.
A variety of scenes taken from Theodore de Bry's Grand Voyages beautify the map. Kayaks, Indian canoes, galleons, sea monsters, and what almost looks like a Chinese junk fill the seas. This map is from an edition of the atlas of 1630. This map last appeared in a French edition of the Mercator-Hondius atlas of 1633.
On the verso, this map has a signature of "Mmmmmmmm" and page "380".(vd Krogt, p. 715).
Van der Krogt, Peter. Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici, vol. 1. 't Goy-Houten: HES Publishers,1997. Burden, Map # 150.
Condition : Very Fine Condition, with one minute, non-distracting stitch-hole on centerfold from when the map was bound into the atlas. Strong map impression in attractive color.

ID: 91739
