HONDIUS, Jodocus, Jr. (1594-1629) and Henricus (1597-1651)
Amsterdam: Henrico Hondius, 1631 [but 1633]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, German text on verso (centerfold reinforced, in very good condition). 18 x 21 1/8 inches. The celebrated Hondius map of the Americas, in the third state. Originally issued by Jodicus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodicus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. The map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century. Several major corrections have been made compared to the 1606 Hondius map. The St. Lawrence Bay and River are much improved, and at the opposite end, Tierra del Fuego has been separated, however nebulously, from the great Terra Incognita, thought (correctly) to exist since ancient times. The rather assertive outgrowth of Virginia in the 1606 map has been modified to reflect more accurately the eastward swelling at North Carolina. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief. The map includes inset maps of the North and South Poles. The nicely drawn ships and sea monsters add to the pleasant aesthetic effect of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America I, 192

A neat inscription to the ffep, dated 1909, and a previous owners' book plate, dated 1897. Has been expertly rebound in full tan leather, with blind tooled parallel lines to both boards, which form a decorative border. 'Plutarch's Lives', 'North' and the date, appear in gilt on the spine, with gilt tooling in all 5 of the other compartments. Sunning to both boards has resulted in the shadow of another book that has been placed on top to become apparant. There are two small cracks to join between the front endpapers, measuring four and a half and fifteen centimetres, with another similar crack in the join between the rear endpapers, measuring nine centimetres. These endpapers are not original, and are also stained around the edges (measuring 0.6mm), where they have taken on the brown colour of the leather. Virtually no foxing to pages, though there is a little discolouration due to age. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
