Title : Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Floridae, Novae . . ..
Map maker : HOMANN, J.B..
Date : Nuremberg, 1720.
Size : 18.7 x 22.4 inches. / 47.5 x 57.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.
Description :The map shows the eastern sea board of America, the West Indies and the various estates and countries that border the Gulf of Mexico, with decorative -uncoloured- cartouches. The map was designed to illustrate the gold routes of the Spanish during plunders of the Inca Empire. The large title cartouche depicts a gold mine under European supervision, and on the left a sea battle. The upper region of the Mississippi and Rio Bravo are well defined for the period.
The British colonies are shown confined east of the Appalachians. The map itself is filled with settlement place names, Indian tribes and villages, and sea routes from Vera Cruz and Cartagena to Havana and Spain are outlined. The sheet is richly embellished with a fine (uncoloured) title cartouche depicting two native figures and symbols of America's natural resources. In the Atlantic is a large (uncoloured) engraved scene of extensive gold mining operations with Indians bringing their treasures to fill the European's treasure chest. Off the Pacific coast of Mexico is yet another opulent engraving of a raging sea battle between many ships.
Van Ermen p.42., Cumming (SE) 137.
