Nice old color example of Jansson's edition of Hessel Gerritsz' rare chart of 1631.

The area covered is exactly the same as Gerritsz map, except for the addition of the west coat of Central America. The nomenclature in North America is virtually identical, other than the addition of Viriginia on this map. It reflects the first hand knowledge of Gerritsz during his voyage to South America and the West Indies undertaken in 1628. A nice example in full color, with rhumb lines, sailing ships, compass rose and fine cartouches.

Condition Description: A very dark impression, with no text on the verso. Quite possibly from an early composite atlas, as there is a manuscript number in the upper right corner.

References: Burden 248.
