WORLD MAP NOVA TOTIUS ORBIS GEOGRAPHICA

Code: M2798

Cartographer: HONDIUS Family

Date: 1642 Paris

Size: 38*55 cms

Very Rare World Map.

Full title : Nova totius terrarum orbis geographica ac hydpographica tabula auct: Jud. Hoondius

by MARIETTE (Pierre);HONDIUS (Jodocus)

The map is based on Hondius"s 1617 world map.

The map depicts the discovery of the Le Maire Strait at the tip of South America. In North America, the St. Lawrence River runs nearly the entire width of the continent, terminating in a large lake not far from the infamous Civolo 7 citta (7 cities of Cibola). Hudson Bay is depicted after the work of Gerritsz. In Asia, Korea is shown as an island, the northern coast of New Guinea is more properly located and there is a large Terre Australle Incognue with Boach named in the region of the Australian continent. The surrounding engravings include a pair of celestial charts, circular diagrams containing the compass points, the names of the winds, the climatic zones, the heavenly orbits and a thirty-year calendar. The map is richly adorned with a variety of decorations including three cartouches, each with figures, numerous sailing ships, sea monsters, flying fish and a depiction of Neptune. This is the first state with Mariette's imprint.

The map has been archivally backed. Excellent hand colour. Overall very good condition.

Shirley, 358.
