Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : America tam Septentrionalis quam Meridionalis...
Map maker : SCHENK,P..
Date : Amsterdam 1720.
Size : 18.0 x 22.6 inches. / 45.8 x 57.5 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :An uncommon map of the Americas with two superb pictorial (uncoloured) cartouches. Engraved by A.F. Zurner and based largely on Visscher and Sanson. California is shown as an Island with an indented northern coast on the Sanson model with the inclusion of three place names in Southern California: S. Isidoro, Gigante and N S del la Guadalupe. The title cartouche, flanked by two Native Americans, conveniently hides Terra Esonis Incognita that stretches out towards Asia and the Fretum Anian separates it from California. A large vignette at bottom shows explorers seated around a table, natives worshiping in a temple, a battle, and the figure of America displaying the wealth of the hemisphere. Latin text enclosed in the cartouche discusses the explorations of Columbus and Vesputius, and Catholic missions. ¤
McLaughlin 166, Tooley, p.128, #6, plt 52, Wagner (NW) #490.
Condition : Some slight (pleasant) age-toning of the paper. Slight discolouration along lower half centre fold. Else very good condition.

ID: 22771
