Americae Nova Tabula : W. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Rare variant form of Blaeu's famous folio panelled map of the Americas, apparently from Emanuel van Meteren's 'Warhafftige Beschreibung Aller Denckwurdigsten Geschichten ...', published in 1633. For this publication, the panelled borders were masked off, apparently by being covered with paper, before printing, presumably to fit the smaller format of the book. This is one of the few examples of a Blaeu map being used in any publication other than one of their atlases.
