Description :World map according to Mercator?s Projection.
From Harris, A compleat collection of Voyages and Travels..
A great geographic blank, labelled Parts Undiscovered, occupies all of northwest North America. The area west of Hudson?s Bay and north of the Churchill River is New North Wales, while the country around the Albany River is New South Wales.
In Baffin?s Bay is the note: ?Discovered by W. Baffin an English Man Anno 1622 & 1624.?
Three-dimensional eastern Groenland is Ice & Mountains Cover?d with Snow.
Also unusual: The entire American West is Florida!
Africa is especially interesting, with Biledulgerid located between Morocco and the Sahara (here ?Zara or the Desart?).
New Holland? (i.e., Australia), very imperfectly known, has a Bay of Dogs Dis.[covered] by Dampier 1699.
New Zeeland is a mere squiggle.
Visually, the map is enhanced by four fleur-de-lis north points and a myriad of rhumb lines. The curious cartouche features a cannon barrel and a horse struggling to get out of a hole!
Condition : Paper slightly age-toned. Overall good condition.
