Editorial: London. 1676
Año de publicación: 1676
Size: 420 x 550 mm. Good condition. Restoration has been undertaken to all corners, some minor marginal repairs. Map has been cleaned. Copperplate engraving, with later older colour. A wonderfully decorative and pleasing map of the Americas by the famous English cartographer John Speed. The map was published by Bassett and Chiswell in London during the latter half of the seventeenth century. Three sides of the map depict either assorted Native Americans in tribal attire, or vignettes of the important cities and trading settlements then known within the Americas. California is shown as an island, and South America is somewhat misshapen. Sea monsters and galleons patrol the oceans. There is an inset map of Greenland, and a decorative, scrolled title cartouche. This is a famous and iconic map of The Americas, as seen through European eyes. N° de ref. de la librería 65259
