About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of the Island of Hispaniola, or Haiti and Dominican Republic, and the eastern coast of Cuba, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche upper right (a bit toned). From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. On exactly which island in the Caribbean Columbus first made landfall is a still a matter of debate, however of his voyage he left "a vivid but often fantastic and romanticized record, substantial fragments of which have survived. He described Cuba and Hispaniola as well as some smaller islands and recorded conflicting perceptions of the inhabitants, seeing them at times as semibestial savages, at others as models of sylvan innocence or dependence on God; at times as potential slaves to be exploited, at others as souls to be saved. Those of Hispaniola (Arawak Tainos) he was inclined to praise as remarkable civilized beings bearing implicit promise of great civilizations near at hand. Treating as providential the grounding of his flagship on the north coast of Hispaniola [at Nativitat, - ed] on Christmas Day 1492, he left thirty-nine men behind on terms of apparent amity with the locals" (Felipe Fernández-Armesto for ANB). Wytfliet's map is quite detailed and shows both Spanish and indigenous settlements, but . "after 1540 there was a long period of stagnation in the representation of Santo Domingo. It did appear as a single map, Hispaniola Insula, in.Wytfliet in 1597, but this map represents a regression on the early versions" (p. 315 in B.W. Higman's "The Cartography of the Caribbean, 1500-1560" in Vol. II, General History of the Caribbean: New Societies, The Caribbean in the Long Sixteenth Century, UNESCO, 1999).

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map centered on the Davis Strait, showing Greenland, the extreme northeast of Canada, Iceland, and the mythical island of Frisland, the title within a fine strapwork and allegorical cartouche upper left (pale marginal stains, one or two spots). From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. Including the mythical map of Frisland which appeared on virtually all of the maps of the North Atlantic from the 1560s through the 1660s, until French and English navigators explored the area. "The map's importance comes from its concentration on the area of the English voyages of Frobisher and Davis; they are depicted here in greater detail than before. Clearly derived from Cornelis Claes Nova Francia of 1594, Wytfliet interestingly draws upon the inset on it for the area of Labrador which had offered an alternative representation to the main map. Some information is shown twice on this map as both Frobisher and Davis visited the same shores but were unaware of the fact" (Burden 101). Kohl 113. Phillips, America, p. 303.

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of Central Canada, Hudsons Bay and central United States, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche upper left. From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. Burden's State 3 with the name of the island changed to "Higuater": "Despite the fact that this map covers territory virtually unknown to the Europeans, it owes its existence to the fact that Wytfliet showed every part of the continent however little knowledge there was of it. This is, however, the first printed map of present day central Canada. The basic cartography derives from Gerard Mercator's world map of 1569, which first depicted a large body of water inland in the extreme north. There has been much speculation as to what this might refer to; it has een suggested that it could be a record of a voyage unknown to us that visited Hudson Bay, it could even be remnants of the Verrazzano sea theory. At the top of the map we find the North West Passage" (Burden 100). Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada, pp. 44-46. Phillips, America, p. 558.

Reduced from Rumold Mercator's map of 1587, which in turn was condensed from his father Gerard Mercator's great world map of 1569, and Chile retains its distinctive bulge from that map. Curiously enough on this map the longitude of California is only about 40°. Wytfliet apparently had to shorten this in order to get America on the hemisphere. No names are shown on the coast, only to the north: El Streto de Anian and Anian Regnum" (Wagner).

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 2/8 inches; 9 x 11 2/8 inches to the neat line). Engraved map in two parts showing the coast of Patagonia and the Strait of Magellan, and part of a southern hemisphere showing Antarctica, with the title in a fine oval mannerist strapwork cartouched lower right, decorated with a fine three-masted galleon sailing through the Strait of Magellan (browned, one of two stains affecting the image). An early state of this map, dated 1597, from the first French edition of Wytfliet's . "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. Interestingly in the map of Antarctica, New Guinea is shown as being separate from Terra Australis, implying that Wytfliet knew of the Torres strait some eight years before Luis Vaez de Torres approached it from the east. The accompanying text corroborates his supposed knowledge: "The Australis Terra is the most southern of all lands. It is separated from New Guinea by a narrow strait. Its shores are hitherto but little known, since, after one voyage and another, that route has been deserted, and seldom is the country visited, unless sailors are driven there by storms. The Australis Terra begins at two or three degrees from the Equator, and is maintained by some to be of so great an extent that, if it were thoroughly explored, it would be regarded as a fifth part of the world".

The general shape derives from that of Mercator's world map of 1569, with a pronounced bulge coincidentally similar to that of Alaska as we know it today, but latitudinally larger so that its south coast is at about 40 degrees. all of the coast above approximately C.Medocino was yet to be visited by Europeans and it was left to Captain James Cook, 180 years later, to first accurately chart these waters. South of this the Spanish had made a number of exploratory voyages starting in the 1530s" (Burden 107). Kohl 282. Lowery 85n. Phillips, America, p. 558.

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of Mexico from the far northwestern region to the southeastern area, including the western coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Acapulco, Culiacan, Guadalajara, Veracruz, and Mexico City, the title within an elaborate strapwork and allegorical cartouche lower left (some small patches of surface abrasion, one or two spots). From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. "This map concentrated on the Spanish area of influence in present day Mexico. Like a lot of his maps [Wytfliet] draws from Plancius' world map of 1592 amongst others. The area covered takes in all of present day southern Texas up to the latitude of 30° north" (Burden 108). Cornelis van Wytfliet, secretary to the Council of Brabant, called his atlas of the New World a supplement to Ptolemy's "Geography", although the two works are actually quite separate. Dedicated to King Philip III of Spain, and covering the history of the first European encounters with the New World, its geography, and natural history. Wyfliet used as his source the works of Acosta, Hakluyt, de Bry and Ramusio.

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of the Gulf of California, Mexican coast, and west coast of California, which is shown as a peninsula, oriented to the east, the title within fine mannerist strapwork cartouche top left. "The first printed map devoted to California and the south-west of the present day United States. One of the most interesting features is the depiction of so many fabled places largely from Spanish sources. Most notable amongst these are the seven cities of Cibola. The seven cities originated from the narrative of Fray Marcos de Niza in 1539. Some of the other nomenclature originates from Coronado's epic exploration. The outline map is fairly accurate and is derived largely from Petrus Plancius' large world map of 1592. The main coastal irregularity is the westward slant of the Californian coastline. Bearing in mind that it would be shown as part of an island in twenty five years, this is quite forgivable. No other states of the map are known and all issues are without text on the back" (Burden 106). From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605.

About this Item: A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605., 1605. Single sheet (10 6/8 x 13 inches; 9 x 11 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of the northeastern coast of North America from Virginia to Cape Breton in New France, the title within a plain cartouche upper left, decorated with a large detailed compass rose to the lower right (one or two marginal spots). Burden's first state with the left latitudinal mark reads 30 instead of 39. From the first French edition of Wytfliet's "Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum", "Histoire Vniverselle des Indes". A Douay: Aux despens de François Fabri, 1605. Showing the eastern seaboard of North America from Cape Breton south to the Outer Banks of North Carolinas, described by Burden as "the most accurate map of the east coast until de Laet", this makes an interesting comparison with the Smith map of New England, with its contraction of the New England, New Jersey and Virginia region. The great city of "Norumbega" prominent to the right of the title, an early New England misconception, is generally thought to represent the Penobscot region in Maine. Thus this map omits completely Cape Cod, New York, Long Island and New Jersey, with the next "recognisable" feature to the south being "Chesipooc Bay", although not the Chesapeake Bay as we know it today, or as mapped by Smith in 1608. Cornelis van Wytfliet, secretary to the Council of Brabant, called his atlas of the New World a supplement to Ptolemy's "Geography", although the two works are actually quite separate. Dedicated to King Philip III of Spain, and covering the history of the first European encounters with the New World, its geography, and natural history.

About this Item: Douay: Chez Franchois Fabri, 1607., 1607. Folio, (12 x 8 inches). 3 engraved pictorial title pages (the first supplied in facsimile, without text leaves S4 and final two leaves, f6 in part three with marginal stain, some browning and staining). Part I "Histoire Universelle des Indes Orientales et Occidentales" (Wytfliet): [1-6], 1-34, 38, 36-76, [1-2], 77-136, [1-6]. Part II "Histoire Universelle des Indes Orientales" (Magin): [1-12], 1-28, 19, 30-41, [1], 42, [1], 43, [1], 44, [1], 45, 34, 45, 36, 47, 38, 49, 40-72. Part III "Histoire Universelle des Indes Orientales, de la Conversion des Indiens": [1-2], 1, [1], 2, [1], 3, [1], 4, [1], 8, [1], 6, [1], 7,[1], 7, [1], 9-17, 22, 19-22, 19, 24-71, 66. 19 fine engraved double-page maps, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces (slight browning). Later vellum over pasteboard (rebacked, covers bowed). Provenance: Contemporary marginalia. From the important library of Jean R. Perrette, his sale, Ex Libris Jean R. Perrette: Important Travel, Exploration & Cartography, April 5, 2016, Christie's sale 12259, Lot 34, with Perrette's bookplate to the front pastedown. Second French edition, first published in 1605, of "the first separately published atlas devoted to the Americas" (Skelton). 3 parts in one volume. With Mercator's map of the world (Shirley 207: "Reduced from Rumold Mercator's map of ten years earlier") and 18 maps of the Americas. The first part is extracted and freely translated from the first edition published in Latin in 1597, "Descriptionis Ptolemaicæ augmentum," and the fine and important series of American maps are printed from the same copper plates, with only very minor changes, primarily to the titles. The second part was written by Magini and is entirely devoted to the East Indies. Cornelis van Wytfliet, secretary to the Council of Brabant, called his atlas of the New World a supplement to Ptolemy's "Geography," although the two works are actually quite separate. Dedicated to King Philip III of Spain, and covering the history of the first European encounters with the New World, its geography, and natural history, Wyfliet used as his source the works of Acosta, Hakluyt, de Bry and Ramusio. Wytfliet's atlas was an immediate success, and six further editions, including three with French text (as here), were published within the next two decades. "It is as important in the history of the early cartography of the new world, as Ptolemy's maps are in the study of the old" (Phillips). The very fine and important maps are: [1] Utriusque Hemispherii delineatio. Double-hemispherical world map: "Curiously enough on this map the longitude of California is only about 40°. Wytfliet apparently had to shorten this in order to get America on the hemisphere. No names are shown on the coast, only to the north: El Streto de Anian and Anian Regnum" (Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast, p. 293). [The World Encompassed 204. Moreland & Bannister, Antique Maps p. 251 (illustrated) & p. 254. Shirley 207 & Plate 165. Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici: 371:11:1 (illustrated 0001:371).

About this Item: Gerard Rivius, Louvain, 1598. Folio (11 7/8 x 7 5/8 inches). Roman and italic types, engraved title-page within fine historiated architectectural border, 19 double-page engraved maps (including a world map and 18 regional maps of the Americas), woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces (one insignificant marginal repair, occasional faint dampstains at lower margins). Contemporary pigskin over paste-board, covers elaborately decorated with a broad border of blind architectural roll-tools, surrounding small putti and floral tools and a central arabesque medallion on the front cover, and the ecclesiastical arms of a Bishop on the back cover, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, with the title in manuscript in one (small early repair at the head of the spine, traces of two pairs of ties, lightly soiled, extremities a bit scuffed). Provenance: 18th-century inscription "Geogr[aphy] III" on front paste-down; David Parsons (Collection of Voyages and Travels). ".as important in the history of the earliest cartography of the new world, as Ptolemy's maps are in the study of the old" (Phillips). An exceptional copy in a fine contemporary binding of "the earliest distinctively American atlas. It is as important in the history of the earliest cartography of the new world, as Ptolemy's maps are in the study of the old" (Phillips). Second edition, Rivius issue (edition shared with Johann Bogard). The maps are fine, early impressions: "Nova Francia et Canada," "Norumbega et Virginia," "Limes Occidentis," "Peruani regni descriptio," and "Chica sive Patagonica" all carry the date of 1597. First published by Johann Bogard in 1597. Cornelis van Wytfliet, secretary to the Council of Brabant, called his atlas of the New World a supplement to Ptolemy's "Geography", although the two works are actually quite separate. Dedicated to King Philip III of Spain, and covering the history of the first European encounters with the New World, its geography, and natural history, Wyfliet used as his source the works of Acosta, Hakluyt, de Bry and Ramusio. The fine maps, by an unknown engraver, include a double-hemispherical world map (Shirley 207) based on Rumold Mercator's influential 1587 map, eight maps of North America (Burden 100-107), ten maps of South America (Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, present-day Colombia and Venezuala, the northernmost coast of South America with the neighbouring Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, and two maps of Central America), and one of Antarctica and are for many of the regions the earliest separate printed maps. Among the North American maps are the first map to use "Canada" in its title, the first printed map of central Canada, the first printed map devoted to California and the present-day Southwest of the US (embellished with a number of fanciful place names, based on Spanish sources); one of only three 16th-century printed maps of Florida, which includes surrounding regions such as Cuba and the coast north to the Outer Banks, and which is one of the few 16th-century maps of America to record any geographical information on inland areas; and the map "Norumbega et Virginia," only the second printed map to use the name Virginia, and which remained the most accurate map of the East Coast from the Carolinas to Canada until the publication of de Laet's map of the same area in 1630. Wytfliet's atlas was an immediate success, and six further editions, including three with French text, were published within the next two decades. Bogard issued two editions in 1597, the second correcting errors of pagination and with the maps bound in with the related sections of text.
