Description:


Copper-engraved map, hand-colored in outline, with 2 colored cartouches. 49x55.4 cm. (



Large map of North and South America with California an island. This is the third state of a revised edition of Visscher's map of 1670,  the shape of California changed to the Sanson model and the cartouches slightly changed.  This third state has an amended title, and as with the second state, New Guinea and other islands have been added - California is unchanged from the first state, except for the addition of the words "Nova Albion." The map contains fascinating details and engravings including a large battle scene in South America and numerous indigenous animals in North America. The Great Lakes are open ended in the west and the "R. del Norte", show Santa Fe on its banks but flows into the sea between the west coast and California. McLaughlin 49:3.

Condition
Right and left margins trimmed over the border but with minimal loss of image, tape reinforcement on verso around the edges, and a few repaired tears, portions of a few longitudinal lines are refreshed with ink, a bit of loss at corners; good condition only, but a significant map.
