This map comes from the first french edition of Langene's Caert Thresor ..here the Atlas is titled 'Thresor de Chartes, contenant les Tableaux de Tous les Pays du Monde'.
Printed in the Hague for Cornelis Claesz.
Double hemisphere map is finely engraved with a strapwork surround, the name Iehova at top, and a compass rose with Jodocus Hondius' imprint at bottom. Terra Australis Incognita fills the Southern Hemisphere and nearly connects to New Guinea in the region of Australia. Due to the small size of the map, there are only a few place names and only the major topographical features are delineated. Anian, Nova Francia, Norobega, Florida, California, and Hispania Nova are noted in North America.
The small maps are 'extremely well-engraved: neat and clear, elegantly composed' Koeman
Printed surface very good with tiny repaired hole but the margins are a bit scruffy
Very good hand colour
Overall very good condition.
