Jansson's map of the North Pole shows the partial northern coastlies of Asia, Europe (including partial outlines for Nova Zembla and Spitsberg), Greenland and North America. Jansson's map replaced an earlier example by Hondius and was first published in 1637. The plate was amended and updated throughout its lifetime - this particular map is a second state with a legend (in Latin) added beneath the title cartouche. This decorative title cartouche also hides the unknown western coast of North America. Jansson's imprint at lowe right has decorative embellishment in the form of two male figures in furs and an inquisitive-looking wolf. German text to verso.
