Title : Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula..
Map maker : PITT, M. / SWART, S. / JANSSONIUS v. WAESBERGHE.
Date : Oxford, 1689.
Size : 15.4 x 20.9 inches. / 39.0 x 53.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :An extremely decorative world map. It appeared in the famous 'English Atlas' by Moses Pitt and Steven Swart, and is based on an earlier engraved world map by Pieter van den Keere ca. 1630, which was itself based on Blaeu's earlier map of 1606.
In the title cartouche are the coat of arms of the Bishop of Oxford, Edward Wells' patron.

The map is dedicated to Johannes Janssonius Van Waesbergen, an established bookseller in Amsterdam, who acquired from his father-in-law Jan Jansson, many plates including those of the 'Atlas Minor', the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' and the 'Atlas of the Antique World'.
He was associated with Moses Pitt, in the attempt to publish an English version of the major atlases by Blaeu and Jansson in 1680-81. The original intention of Pitt was to publish a 12 volume "English Atlas' of the world, however, financial woes set in, and only 4 volumes were ever produced.
As a result, Pitt was declared bankrupt, and was sent to a debtors prison from 1689 until 1691. He died in 1697.

The map has many decorative features. They include the four elements, the four seasons, the seven wonders of the world, and the seven planets of the solar system.
