Map Maker: Jan Jansson

Place / Date: Amsterdam / 1635 ca

Coloring: Hand Colored

Size: 21 x 15 inches

Condition: VG

Price: SOLD

Inventory ID: 26106


Description:

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

The area covered is exactly the same as the original 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: Very light soiling at centerfold.
