Title : Virginiae item et Floridae..
Map maker : HONDIUS, J. / CLOPPENBURG, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1630.
Size : 7.4 x 9.9 inches. / 18.8 x 25.2 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :From the rare French text edition of Mercator's Atlas Minor. From the first of the so-called Cloppenburg edition with new engraved maps in a larger format. The map extends from St. Augustine in the south to just north of 'Chesepioock Sinus' in the north, and to the Alleghany Mountains in the west, naming a number of early towns. A highly collectable early map of the Southeast.

Cummings describes it as one of the most beautifully executed maps ever made of the Southeast both in detail and in general conception it surpasses all earlier maps of the region . It was first published in 1606. Hondius folio map drew on various sources for his map: John White's map which was the first to present Virginia on its own: Le Moyne, who drew not only on the information of the French explorers, but also on the Indians which was, at times, notoriously unreliable. He also drew on Ortelius and Wytfliet.
This cartographic compromise led to the continuation of some misconceptions: the north westerly flow of the River May and the placing of a great lake at its source was a mistake that was to last for well over one hundred years.

Condition : The right hand margin slightly cropped into map scales. Lower margin is very tight. With French text on verso. Good impression.

ID: 38658
