Insulae Americanae in Oceano Septentrionali cum Terris adiacentibus
Amsterdam, 1635. No Binding. Near Fine. 15 x 20 ¾ inches. Fine original color; paper lightly toned, else excellent condition. A very attractive example in full original color of one of the most decorative early maps of Florida and the entire Gulf and Caribbean regions. It was based on the extremely rare Hessel Gerritsz chart of 1631, which was made for pilots sailing for the Dutch West India Company. Blaeu's edition retains the nautical characteristics of its ancestor in its rhumb lines, attractive compass roses, and sailing ships. The cartouche and scales are decorated with putti and a striking selection of fauna, including reptiles, a sea tortoise and a bat, associated with the regions portrayed. Burden 242.
