Description:

Fascinating chart of the Atlantic Ocean and the contiguous coastlines of America, Europe and Africa, by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, one of the most important map makers of the late 17th century.

The map provides a detailed treatment of the Atlantic Coastlines of America, crediting the initial discovery of America to Antonio Zeno of Venice.  The publication of the map coincided with a period where the credibility of Zeno's supposed discovery was at a high point, following its earliest reports over 100 years earlier. 

The coastal features of America are identified in fine detail, with more than 100 place names identified and dozens of coastal rivers shown.
