Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Florida et Apalche..
Map maker : METELLUS, J..
Date : Cologne, 1600.
Size : 7.4 x 9.6 inches. / 18.7 x 24.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Very rare map of Florida, including parts of Cuba and the east coast north to the area of the Outer Banks of Carolina. The map is a reduced version of Cornelis Wytfliet map of 1597 although it lacks the TROPICVS CANCRI. Most of the knowledge shown derives from the explorations of Hernando de Soto during the years 1539-42. It is one of the handful of printed maps of the present day southern United States published in the sixteenth century.
Published in Metellus America sive Novus Orbis. First published in 1598 by Acosta who was a Spanish Jesuit missionary, historian and cosmographer. The included maps, however, are attributed to Metellus. In the "America sive Novis Orbis" of 1600, he is named as the cartographer of the maps but, most probably, did not see their completation as he died in 1597. The work was finished by Matthias Quad.
This extremely rare map is of great interest for the serious collector!
Burden, The Mapping of North America, 119.
Condition : Paper slightly age-toned as usual. Some discoloration along center fold. Some offsetting of the Latin text on verso. Large margins. Very good condition.

ID: 23968
