Henricus Hondius
Guiana suie Amazonum Regio
c.1633. Art Source International is proud to offer rare maps produced in 1633 by one of the dominant map-making houses of the 1630%27s. The atlas that this map is attributed to was first published in 1633 by Henricus Hondius and Joannes Janssonius and contained individual works by each map-maker, some derived from Henricus%27s brother Jodocus" plates, and a number of maps by Mercator that Hondius acquired from his father -also Jodocus. Although it is somewhat unclear which maps were published cooperatively between Henricus Hondius and Joannes Janssonius and which were individual works, this map illustrating Guyana bears the imprint of Henricus Hondius. The large, exceptionally well maintained map has beautiful hand coloring highlighting rivers, coast lines, and political boundaries. Many place names are identified, especially along the coast. The map is bright and full with ships sailing in he ocean, and sea monsters.
