Mappe Monde c.1713

Rp 200,000

A very attractive twin hemisphere map of the world by the famous Dutch cartographer Pieter (Pierre) Vander Aa published in his atlas ‘Le Nouveau Theatre du Monde’ in Leiden in 1713.This uncommon decorative world map has vignettes symbolizing the four continents filling the corners and illustrates the routes of several sixteenth century explorers in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, including Magellan, Tasman, Chevalier de Chermont and Mendana. The western coastline of New Zealand is illustrated, along with parts of Australia and Tasmania. The entire northwest coast of North America is blank above the peninsular California. There is a remnant of the coastline that suggested a connection between North America and Asia on earlier maps: here with a notation concerning the discoveries of Vasco de Gamma. The eastern coast of Asia is truncated and a huge Terre d’Yeco forms the northern part of Japan.
