Mappa Aestivarum Insularum Alias Barmudas.
1640 - Amsterdam, 1640, Latin edition. Original colour. 400 x 530mm. Good impression, wide margins. A very fine map of the island of Bermuda, based on the Speed map of 1627. A miniature version of the map has been inserted just under the title cartouche to show the position of the islands against the American mainland, seen across the top. This led later cartographers, including Moll, Le Rouge and Zatta (in 1778!) to include the miniature as an extra island. KOEMAN: Bl 22; PALMER: p.8, plate III.
