Click image to zoom old map image



Title : America noviter delineata.
Map maker : HONDIUS,H./JANSONIUS,J.
Date : Amsterdam 1644.
Size : 14.8 x 19.5 inches. / 37.5 x 49.5 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Beautiful map of the Americas originally issued by Jodocus Hondius and derived from two earlier maps by Blaeu. The North Pole depicts Frobisher's theory of the Northwest Passage and the South Pole shows the long-held notion of the mythical southern continent.
North America retains the peninsular California and the East Coast is beginning to take shape, although it still lacks detail in the mid-Atlantic region.
In South America, there is a large inland sea and two engraved scenes, one of which details a cannibalistic feast. Two stylized insets of the two Polar Regions are enclosed in strapwork cartouches.
The map is richly ornamented with a strapwork title cartouche, fleets of ships and sea monsters. This is the uncommon 4th state with Jansson's imprint below the cartouche.
German text on verso, probably published between 1644 and 1658.
Burden 192
Condition : Some very light discolouration due to offsetting of oxidation of paint. Very good condition.


ID: 16998
