Nova Hispania et Nova Galicia. - BLAEU, W.
Click image to in.
Title : Nova Hispania et Nova Galicia..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, 1658.
Size : 15.0 x 19.5 inches. / 38.0 x 49.5 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.
Description :Based on Ortelius's map of 1579 which became the basis for many of the seventeenth century maps of the area. Despite the implications in the title, the map does not cover all of the provinces of New Spain, only a portion of modern Mexico. At the time, the region was described as being rich in gold & silver, with pearl-fishing carried on in the coastal regions. The numerous salt lakes produced the finest salt by means of evaporation, and much was made of the sugar-cane cultivated here.
In the east of the mapped area, below the large title cartouche may be seen the area of Mexico city, situated on the shores of a large lake, described as an ample city, queen of all the cities in the New World. Although the mapmaker gave no clues, the small lozenge shaped symbols to the left of the cartouche probably indicate gold or silver mines.
The elaborate title cartouche is surrounded by the Spanish Royal Coat of arms.
A lovely copy of this decorative map.
Condition : Printed on heavy paper. Some light water staining in upper margin, hardly affecting the engraved area. Dutch text on verso. Wide margins, very good impression.
