America Septentrionalis Novissima ... America Meridionalis accuratissima
Amsterdam: P. Schenk, 1696. Copper-engraved map, full period hand colouring. 21 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. Lovely 17th century map of North and South America with California as an island. This elegant map is noted for its cartouches designed by Romein de Hooghe. "The most notable feature of this map is the two separate titles for North and South America. These, it is believed, are etched by the noted artist Romein de Hooghe. The cartography reflects that typical of the period for Amsterdam. Five Great Lakes are shown, the two western ones being left open to the west, there is an old style depiction of the Mississippi basin, and California is depicted in a Foxe style insular format" (Burden). Burden, The Mapping of North America 722; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 120; Tooley "California as an Island," 56 in Tooley,The Mapping of America.
