Venezuela, cum parte Australi Novae Andalusiae
Amsterdam 1630 - Questa bella mappa del Venezuela di Janssonius, pubblicata nell'Atlas Major, รจ basata sul lavoro di Hessel Gerritsz. La carta comprende anche le isole caraibiche da Aruba a Dominica e Tobago. Nell'interno, sono mostrate montagne, foreste, fiumi, mentre i toponimi sono riportati principalmente lungo le coste, rispecchiando le allora relativamente scarse conoscenze del territorio interno. Incisione su rame, bella coloritura coeva, due fori di tarlo in corrispondenza della piega centrale, lungo la quale si notano tracce di colla, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. This Venezuela map by Jansson is based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz. It covers the Venezuelan coast of South America, east to the mouth of the Orinoco, and includes the offshore islands from Aruba through Dominica and Tobago. The fine engraving illustrates the mountains, forests, rivers and missions in the interior, but shows place names primarily along the coastlines owing to the relatively few explorations made into the interior. The map is embellished with title and distance scale cartouches, a pair of compass roses and a galleon in the sea. From the Latin edition of the Atlas Major. Copper engraving, contemporary old coloured, two worm holes along the center fold, otherwise in good condition. Van der Krogt (Vol. I) #9830 Dimensioni 496 380mm
