Novi Orbis Sive Totius Americae ... Nova Exhibitio : C.Weigel

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A small and interesting map of the Americas showing California as an island. An elaborate title cartouche appears in the lower left corner of the map and shows tobacco breaching the divide between nations (tobacco advertising laws were no doubt less stringent in the 1700s ...) - figures in native dress offer rolls od tobacco while a pipe-smoking European figure looks on. The map was published in "Io. Kavidis Koeleri Hist. Et Polit. PP. Altdorfini Atlas Manualis Scholasticus Et Itinerarius Complectens Novae Geopgraphiae Tabulas ...".
