Title : Carte très curieuse de la Mer du Sud, contenant des remarque...
Map maker : CHATELAIN, H..
Date : Amsterdam 1719.
Size : 30.7 x 55.1 inches. / 78.0 x 140.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Based on de Fer's map of 1713. One map on 4 sheets, showing America in the middle with Europe on one side and the Pacific with Japan and China on the other.
Top sheets of north of equator, showing California as an island with many coastal place names on second Sanson model with indented northern coast. Detroit d'Anian, Terre d'Anian and Agubela de Cato to north. Includes vignettes of beavers, fishing industry, 9 portraits medallions of explorers, and detail of Detroit de Gibraltar and Cap de Bonne Espèrance. Routes of explorers are traced on map.
Bottom sheets of south of equator, with highly decorative vignettes surrounding charts of Panama, Acapulco, Lima, Baldive La Ville de Mexique, La Conception, Rio de la Plata, La Havane, St. Sebastien, and Vera Cruz .
Described by Schwartz as 'one of the most elaborately engraved maps', and Tooley as 'one of the most decorative maps of North America of the eighteenth century', this is undoubtedly one of the most richly decorated world maps ever produced.
Clustering around the margins of the chart are sumptuously engraved and richly coloured vignettes depicting indigenous peoples and exotic flora and fauna of the New World as well as famous historic events. Some of the images, such as the scene of beavers building dams and the view of the codfish factory, are derived from Herman Moll.
Australia is charted according to the discoveries of Tasman: "Nouvelle Hollande découverte l'an 1644", and the new place name "Golfo de Carpentarie" is recorded. The north of the continent is shown strangely flattened and the south coast of Tasmania, "Terre d'Antoine Diemens", is placed at a very great distance from the rest of the continent.
Significantly this is one of the first maps to begin to dispel the myth of California as an island. Although it is tentatively drawn as such, a notation states that "moderns" believe it to be part of the mainland.
Condition : Mint condition. Two separate sheets, together forming a wall map of 78x140cm.
