About this Item

America noviter delineata (North America / New World / Exploration / etc.) Issued 1630 [1661], Amsterdam by Cloppenburg, Joh. & Jansson after Hondius for Gerard Mercator. Likely engraved by P. van der Keere (see Burden). This 1661 re-issue of the 1630 Cloppenburg engraved plate was issued by Jansson for an edition of Cluverius Geographius, (perhaps undocumented).*Charming and scarce antique early to mid 17th century miniature map of the Americas. Reverse blank. Title within simple scroll cartouche lower left. Tall mast sailing ships, sea monsters, fictitious features like bogus islands of Friesland & Brasil in North Atlantic ocean and the mythical Lake Parime, rumored location of El Dorado, fabled city of Gold. Outline of both countries inaccurate and distorted. North America juts endlessly towards Alaska, but with no indication of it. The entire interior of America is essentially blank and unknown, aside from the east coast, which is also shown distorted. Incorrect mountain ranges across the mid-west, Great Lakes shown totally wrong, joined, etc. Paper evenly moderately age toned to fine mellow patina. Overall the map is clean, well preserved and very attractive. Original fold line as issued. Sheet measures c. 11" x 8". Engraved area measures c. 10" x 7".*Burden, Mapping of North America, 224. calling it "uncommon". Noting several issuances, but not this 1661 Cluverius by Jansson. Koeman, Atlantees Neerlandici, v. II, p. 544-8, Me-205-08. [noting variant printings, but not this particular one]. Tooley's Dictionary of Mamakers, v. 1.[R12050]. Bookseller Inventory # 192335388918
