recent arrival
An important map of Bermuda from one of the renowned world atlases published by the Blaeu family. Many of the plates had been prepared and engraved by Jodocus Hondius for his own atlas project but were purchased by Willem Blaeu to form the nucleus of his world atlas publication. 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. This example, with Latin text to verso, has had some backing to weak paper areas but is, nevertheless a very decorative and good looking map.
