Click image to zoom old map image



Title : America sive India Nova..
Map maker : MERCATOR / HONDIUS..
Date : Amsterdam, 1619.
Size : 14.4 x 18.1 inches. / 36.5 x 46.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :This map was created by Michael Mercator, grandson of the great Gerard Mercator. It is the only map attributed to him.
The map first appeared in 1595, one year after the great cartographer’s death in the atlas published by his son Rumold. The general outline of the map was taken from Rumold Mercator’s world map of 1587.

Some of these unique views from that map were incorporated – such as the mystical islands of the North Atlantic (St. Brendan), the bulge on the west coast of South America, and the inland lake of fresh water in Canada. Small rounded inset maps contain the title, Cuba, Hispaniola and the Gulf of Mexico.
By 1606, the copperplate had been sold to Jodocus Hondius, who continued to publish the map for the next 33 years. A great, sought after map of the Americas.
Condition : With a split centrefold restored, with little spot lost. Water stains lower left and right corner of the map.
