About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for America noviter delineata by Jodocus Hondius.

Description:

One of the most famous and desirable of all side-panelled maps of America from an early seventeenth century atlas. The map is flanked on both sides by costumed figures of American Indians, and there is a panel of six vignettes of American cities along the upper margin. This map was originally issued separately at an unknown date (no surviving examples), then was included in the Atlas Maioris Appendix of 1630. Both of these versions were surrounded on all four sides by borders of costume figures and town views, but it was discovered that the map was too large for inclusion in the atlas, so the bottom panel of views was removed and the map was reissued with the present format in 1632. All versions have a famous title cartouche at lower right which contains two human skulls. Copper-engraving with period color. Remargined, overall a very nice example. Sheet size: 18 x 22 3/8".

Book Description Jansson, Amsterdam, 1652. Copper-engraved map, with period hand-colouring in outline. Insets of each polar region, both oceans embellished with ships and sea monsters. French text on verso. The celebrated Hondius map of the Americas. Originally issued by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodocus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. The map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century. Several major corrections have been made compared to the 1606 Hondius map. The St. Lawrence Bay and River are much improved, and at the opposite end, Tierra del Fuego has been separated, however nebulously, from the great Terra Incognita, thought (correctly) to exist since ancient times. The rather assertive outgrowth of Virginia in the 1606 map has been modified to reflect more accurately the eastward swelling at North Carolina. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief. The present copy an example of Burden's fifth state, without the border found only on the first state of 1618, with Jansson's imprint at the lower right, and with the date and Hondius imprint removed from the cartouche.

Book Description Henrico Hondius, Amsterdam, 1633. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, German text on verso (centerfold reinforced, in very good condition). The celebrated Hondius map of the Americas, in the third state. Originally issued by Jodicus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodicus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. The map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century. Several major corrections have been made compared to the 1606 Hondius map. The St. Lawrence Bay and River are much improved, and at the opposite end, Tierra del Fuego has been separated, however nebulously, from the great Terra Incognita, thought (correctly) to exist since ancient times. The rather assertive outgrowth of Virginia in the 1606 map has been modified to reflect more accurately the eastward swelling at North Carolina. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief. The map includes inset maps of the North and South Poles. The nicely drawn ships and sea monsters add to the pleasant aesthetic effect of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America I , 192.

HONDIUS JODOCUS

Book Description Claude de la Riviere, Lyon, 1659. Copper engraving, mm 415x555, colored. Very rare "carte a figures" from "Les Estats, Empires, Royaumes et Principautez du Monde" by Pierre d'Avity (1673-1735). He first published his work in 1614, but it was continually enlarged, even after his death. The 1659 posthumous edition was the first to contain four maps of the continents. Although it bears the name of Jodocus Hondius, America has been identified by Burden as a new plate imitating Nicolas Picart's map from 1644 (itself derived from the second state of the Janssonius 1623, with the lower border removed) but with typographic differences, for example 'Cartage' rather than 'Cartagena' on the townplan. One of the few maps of north America with borders; unlike Blaeu's map of 1617, three of the views are north american: (POMEIOOC, an indian village in Virginia, S. AUGUSTIN in Florida and the french fort CAROLINA). The map is embellished by vessels and 10 vignettes with costumes at the borders and 6 view on top (indian village, Carolina, S. Augustin, Havana, S. Domingo and Cartagena). Top left the pagination number Fol. 200 can be seen. Very good condition. Bottom left blank margin added (10 cm).BURDEN: North America 333, 'very rare panelled map'; BETZ: 73.2. Seller Inventory # 11888
