Planisfero Del Mondo Vecchio ... / ... Del Mondo Nuovo ... : V.M.Coronelli

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine pair of maps of East and West hemispheres surrounded by signs of the zodiac, panels of geographical tables and numeric tabulations of latitudinal and astronomical observations. Vincenzo Coronelli was one of Europe's leading map and globe makers at the end of the seventeenth century using information predominantly supplied by the many Jesuit missions around the world. The Eastern hemisphere map - "Mondo Vecchio" shows good outlines for Europe, Africa and Asia and a clear definition of north, west and southwest Nuova Hollandia - Australia. The Western hemisphere includes Tasman's incomplete coastlines for Van Diemen's Land and New Zealand, a hint of the mythical Great Southern Continent, and a clear and detailed South America. North America has a strongly defined and very large island California though, conversely, the map also shows one of earliest correct delineations of the Five Great Lakes. Appearing in the "Atlante Veneto" atlas, the maps are strongly engraved and dramatic images.
