A beautiful and decorative map that was originally issued by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodocus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. This important and influential map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century.

Several corrections have been made compared to the earlier 1606 Hondius map. For instance, The St. Lawrence Bay and River are improved, and at the opposite end of the map, if you look closely, Tierra del Fuego has been separated from the great 'Terra Incognita'. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief.

The map includes twin inset maps of the North and South Poles. There are nicely drawn ships and sea monsters that really add to the pleasant aesthetic effect of the map. Hondius shows the imaginary island of Frisland, Southeast of Iceland1. A very decorative map, representative of a whole generation of Dutch cartography.
Reference: Burden, Mapping of North America I, 192.
