Title/Content of Map: 1700 Allard Map of the Americas with California as an Island -- Recentissima Novi Orbis sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis TabulaDate: 1700, AmstrerdamCartographer: C AllardSize: 19.5 X 22.9 in.
This is an outstanding engraved map of the Americas with much to be discovered still. An extra large California as an Island is one of the geographic oddities. Terra Esonis, a land mass north of California stretches nearly to Japan. The inland of North America is taking shape in this map, although the Great Lakes and the Mississippi are still quite miss-shaped. Another feature is R. Massourite (Missouri) appearing in this map. The South American major river systems are beginning to take their proper shape. Lower left features a decorative title cartouche showing an Amazonian queen surrounded by riches, a sugar cane field and exotic animals. Inset in the cartouche is a small map of the coast of New Zealand.
