Description :This is Scherer's (1628-1704) famous but rather uncommon map showing the skeleton chopping down the tree. Based on his earlier map of the continent (see Norwich Map 62), this map is similar but less detailed, but make up for it with two elaborate cartouches. On the left, an angel is carrying a scroll with an extract from the Bible. Below the angel, under the tree, are five figures in native African and oriental dress. In the opposite corner are four figures kneeling and praying, again with an angel above them.

According to Norwich the map was engraved by Homann. From Scherer´s Atlas "Geographia Artificiosa".
Norwich, Map 68
Condition : A strong dark impression. Small worm damage on centerfold, not repaired. Small folds just entering upper border corners, else very fine.

ID: 90323
