Map maker : PETRINI, Paolo..

Size : 15.7 x 21.7 inches. / 40.0 x 55.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :A rare, old coloured copperplate map of North America by Paolo Petrini. Petrini was active in Naples at the end of the 17th and early 18th Century.
Most of the maps which Petrini produced were drawn directly from the work of Nicholas De Fer, making this map of North America, based upon Sanson's famous map of 1650, a great curiosity.
The map follows the 1669 edition of the map, with open Great Lakes, California as an island, limited knowledge of the Mississippi River, which the mouth of which is pushed considerably west of its true location and marvellous detail in New Mexico.
Quivira appears east of the Rio Grande, which is shown flowing in to the Gulf of California. The island of California includes over 20 place names, including P. de S. Diego, Canal de S. Barbara, I. De S. Catalina, Pta de Monte Rey, Pta. De Francisco Draco, and other modern place names.Lake Michigan? Is Lago De Puzolenti and Lake Huron is Mar Dolce. Nice detail along the east coast. Many Indian Names appear. The map is engraved by Antonius Donzel Gallus.

This is the first edition of the map, which includes the second reference to Petrini in the lower part of the title cartouche, which is removed in the 2nd edition. The map was apparently separately issued. Petrini's maps are considered great rarities and are highly collectable. Only two examples have appeared in dealers' catalogues in the past 25 years. (Cartographic Arts, 1993).
McLaughlin 138; Tooley 66; Leighly 113.
