Title : Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio..
Map maker : VISSCHER, N..
Date : Amsterdam, 1677.
Size : 17.1 x 21.5 inches. / 43.5 x 54.5 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :Second state of Visscher's map of the Americas, this decorative map greatly influenced the cartography of the Americas both geographically and artistically.
Although it did not provide much in the way of cartographic advances, this map popularized features derived from Blaeu’s 1648 world map and the Briggs 1625 map of THE ISLAND OF CALIFORNIA.
An innovative detail is the broader north coast to California.
The map is arrayed with wildlife throughout the land, a battle scene in South America, and the seas are filled with sailing ships. The bottom cartouche includes a scene of gold panning. The top cartouche bears a dedication to Cornelis Witsen, and depicts three angels carrying an Indian to heaven while banishing the devil.
Condition : Paper very slightly age toned. Dark impression.
