Description :Five maps; world and four continents.

Planiglobii Terrestris cum Utroq Hemisphaerio .. - A large decorative double hemisphere world map including four polar spheres, each of a different projection. Two interesting diagrams depict the earth, as it would be seen from space. North America is still blank above California, and Hudson Bay is open-ended in the northwest corner. In Oceania there are partial coastlines of New Zealand and Australia. Two very large, decorative cartouches contain the titles, one in Latin, the other French. The Latin cartouche features mythical sea creatures and the other is surrounded fruit and animals representing the bounty of the earth.

Totius Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis.. A richly ornamented map of North and South America. The title cartouche of bottom left is copied from De Fer's map of 1699, and the cartouche containing text (top left) is based on De Lisle's map of Canada of 1703.
This edition shows a corrected Western Coastline, with California no longer shown as an island, although the remnants of the interior sea can be seen near the pais de Moozemlek. Good detail throughout the map, especially in the southwest and near the Great Lakes, which were then actively being explored by the French fur traders and Hudson's Bay Company.
The Mississippi River shows the results of the early French Jesuit explorations, with its sources extending far North of the limits of the maps produced 20 and 30 years earlier, although Le Moyne's mythical lake in the Southeastern US remains.

Europa Christiani Orbis Domina.. - A handsome map of the continent of Europe, also showing parts of Asia Minor, Western Russia, and North Africa. Each European country is colour coded. Decorative title cartouche depicts a woman as the queen of Europe, many putti hold crowns, for the Royal Houses of Europe, and religious items, while winged cherubs hold the title banner.

Asiae Recentissima Delineatio, Qua Status Imperia totius Orientalis. . . - A n early and fine example of this detailed map of Asia, showing the outlines of New Holland, Terre des Papons, Nova Britannia and Capentaria in the south, and Hokkaido (Terre Yedso) is shown as joined to the Japanese mainland, via a narrow isthumu in the east. The title cartouche shows a Sultan on his throne with his subjects, and is surrounded by scroll work and floral decoration. The other cartouche depicts text in latin and a ceremonial procession. A cecorative and interesting map.

Totius Africae nova repraesentatio.. - Richly ornamented map of Africa and the Arabia Peninsula, with a lovely title cartouche of a tribal ruler, and tribesmen and indigenous animals, reptiles and creatures.
With an extraordinary delineation of the Nile which is based partly on Ptolemy (rising in two large lakes, Zaire and Zaflan) and partly on the 16th century discovery of the source of the Nile by the Portuguese Paez. This however is placed far to the south below Lake Zaire, a part of Abyssinia in 20 degrees south.

Following the long period of Dutch domination, the Homann family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the eighteenth century, the business being founded by J. B. Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin Academy of Sciences and, in 1715, he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After the founder's death in 1724, the firm was continued under the direction of his son until 1730 and was then bequeathed to his heirs on condition that it traded under the name of Homann Heirs. In fact, the firm remained in being until the next century and had a wide influence on map publishing in Germany.
Condition : Some water staining, and some old professional repairs to tears to the margins and to the centerfold (260 cm). Some creasing. Good dark impression, otherwise good.
