Title : Mappa Aestivarum Insularum alias Barmudas..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, 1634.
Size : 15.9 x 20.9 inches. / 40.5 x 53.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Blaeu based his work on John Speed's remarkably accurate map of 1626-1627. It shows the island divided into eight tribes and lots, and below the map itself appear the names of the first proprietors and the number of shares assigned each.
The proprietor's names match some of those of the original shipwrecked sailors who helped discover the island. Bermuda was known for a time as Somers Island, named after the Virginia Company's Admiral, Sir George Somers whose vessel ran aground there during a violent storm.
A splendid cartouche shows Neptune astride the Royal Arms holding a ship. The miniature map below the cartouche shows the correct proportion of the island to the coast of the mainland. Further adorned with scale cartouches, coats of arms and compass rose with a fleur-de-lys.
The map is superimposed over a map of the Atlantic with the coastlines of Britain, North America and Hispaniola showing the location of Bermuda. An interesting and desirable map.

From an incomplete example of the 1634 German text edition of Blaeu's "Novus Atlas", previously owned by Johann Christoph Gesen (1639), Johann Rudolph von Metzradt (1651), Friedrich August II, King of Saxony (1797-1854).
P. van der Krogt mentions two variants for the German 1634 text edition and only two examples containing proof states (Bad Münstereifel and Gotha).
