Title : Nouvelle et exacte description du globe terrestre reveue corrigée et augmente´e suivant les derniéres relations des Anglais et Hollandois. Par Guillaume Blaeu 1645..
Map maker : DE FER, A..
Date : Paris, 1645.
Size : 17.1 x 21.9 inches. / 43.5 x 55.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Extremely rare and decorative "carte a figures" world map published by Anthoine de Fer. The double hemisphere world map is surrounded by constellations of the Arctic and Antarctic poles. The upper and lower ornamental borders show peoples of the world and allegorical figures of the four elements. Side borders show allegorical figures of the four seasons. Ships and sea creatures in bodies of water. Includes exploration notes for America, Australia and other regions. Some notes in decorative cartouches.
The map has been engraved by Henri le Roy, with his signature below the western hemisphere. Antoine de Fer copied the map after Claes Jansz. Vischers world map of 1638. His map has a French title and inscriptions. Antoine de Fer translated the cartouche placed below North America which describes America as first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1592 and subsequently by Amerigo Vespucci in 1599. He adds the circumnavigations of Admiral Jacob L’Hermite (1625) - expedition to establish a southern route to the Dutch East Indies around Cape Horn, to investigate establishment of a Dutch colony on the west coast of South America, to attack Spanish merchant shipping, and to plunder Spanish gold and riches. He also ads Hendrik Brouwer (1643) - While rounding Cape Horn, the expedition established that Staten Island was not part of the unknown Southern land.
The partial outline of Australia may well have been derived from Blaeu whose firm was in the possession of revised information by the mid 1640's.
California has also been amended so that it appears as an island. Interestingly he ads "Californie Isle long 1700 lieus". Also Anthoine de Fer ads borders in North America clearly dividing "Nouvelle Bretaigne", "Nouvelle France", "Nou. Belgium", "Floride", "Virginie", "Granade", "Hispania"," Canifornia Is" and "Nouvelle Angleterre" is placed in the Ocean.
Borders are also added for South America and the other continents.
Surprisingly Anthoine the fair depicts Korea on his map as an island "Coree Is".
In general the cartography is very up to date for the period, showing the discovery of Hudson's Bay and the course of the St. Lawrence river. The Straits of le Maire and Magellan are shown. Beach is still shown in the region that would become Australia, based upon the reports of Marco Polo. The early Dutch discoveries in what would become northern Australia are shown.

The cartouche next to "Australia" bears the address "A Paris chez Chez Anthoine de Fer Merchant detailles, doulces Enlumineur des Cartes Geographiques, Demeurant en L'Isle du Pallais, sur le Quay qui regarde le megisserie, proche le pont au Change, a l'ange de Fer 1645".
Although Antoine de Fer copied greatly from Visscher's map, he enlisted Willem Blaeu in the title. According to Tooley, presumably because the name of Visscher did not carry sufficient international status. As a matter of fact Blaeu's map where largely available in Paris at this time, which could not be said for Claes Jansz. Visscher his maps. As a matter of fact the figured border maps for which C.J.Visscher was renowned seems to be a typical Dutch product not used in France. The map is there for one of the first on few examples of such a map produced in France.
The out put of Antoine de Fer is very small. The title states the name of Blaeu.Mapping of Australia [+]
