Mappa Aestivarum Insularum Alias Barmudas ... : J.Hondius / G.Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An important map of Bermuda from one of the earliest world atlases published by the Blaeu family, the "Atlas Appendix ...". The plates were engraved by Jodocus Hondius and were purchased by Blaeu to form the nucleus of the world atlas. As an early 'pull' from the plate, this is a notably good impression of this sought-after map. Based on the map of Richard Norwood, first published by John Speed in 1627, which proved to be the prototype for other English and Dutch maps throughout the next fifty years. The island is shown beneath a large decorative title cartouche and is divided into 'Tribes' with the landowners listed below.
