Scarce Brunswick edition of Cluvers double hemisphere map of the world! Shirley gives dimensions of 140x280mm for the 1641 edition, our map is slightly larger, so this could be from the 1652 edition?

California is retained as a peninsula. Quivira and Anian appear along the northwest coast of America, with Fretum Anian (Straits of Anian) depicted off the coast of Northeast Asia, a depiction of the narrow passage believed to separate the continents and lead to the Northwest and Northeast Passages, above each continent. The interior of North America is little known, with no Great Lakes and only a modest depiction of the Mississippi River. The Rio Grande is flowing into the Gulf of California. With a large Nova Granada dominating the South-West. The bulging depiction of the east coast of North America is reflective of the explorations in the first half of the 17th Century, with Florida, Virginia, Norembega (New England) identified.

Korea is shown as an island!

In the southern hemisphere, Terra Australis Incognita dominates the map, with a narrow passage below Java Major and unnamed New Guinea giving hints of the discovery of the Australian continent.

Rarely seen variant of this map!
Reference: Shirley plate 271 - entry 356.
