Description :One of the earliest wind rose charts to appear in the 17th century. This unusual chart represents the evolution from the wind rose to the compass rose. Early mariners named various winds and the points from which they blew.

Each wind is attached to both contemporary compass points, North West, East and South, and a circle and degree system. In the areas surrounding the sphere, each wind has a figure bearing the racial characteristics associated with the region or direction represented.
The upper left quadrant, representing north, depicts bearded Germans or Scandinavians. The upper right, representing east, shows beardless dark skinned faces.
The pale skinned figures in the lower left and right are less distinguishable. This chart was published as plate 1 in Janssonís 1650 'Atlas Maritimus.'
Condition : Generally good, the centrefold has been reinforced on the verso, along with a closed repair on the verso. Toning bottom centrefold, and the bottom margin has slight loss (shown in photo).
