Neuer Atlas ...
J.B.Homann - Nuremberg - - 28 x 46 - Uncoloured - This is the typographic titlepage to Homann's "Novus Atlas" or "Neuer Atlas", perhaps less frequently seen than the decorative, figurative frontispiece. Beneath the German gothic script is a small map of the world on a north polar projection showing California as an island. Johann Baptist Homann started his career in Amsterdam as an apprentice with the Danckerts family before returning to Nuremberg to establish himself in business in 1702. The firm quickly became the principal geographical publishers in Germany and in 1715 Homann was appointed Geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor.
