A New Map Of The World From The Latest Observations ... : J. Senex

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A scarce double-hemisphere map of the world "Most Humbly Inscribed To His Royal Highness George Prince Of Wales" and showing a relatively late depiction of California as an island. The map also shows partial outlines of Australia, New Zealand, Van Dieman's Land and New Guinea. Around the central hemispheres are further projections; two showing the northern and southern hemispheres projected on "the plan of the equator" and two showing the earth projected on "the plan of the horizon of London". The map is further decorated with an armillary sphere beneath the hemispheres and a cacophony of decorative allegories above the hemispheres and surrounding the title cartouche. The map is a fine celebration of the Baroque with its florid ornamentation. The map was published in Senex's "New General Atlas". The title cartouche shows the map is "Revis'd by I.Senex" and is now thought to have been first published by Christopher Browne in c.1690 although no examples of that map are known. Fine lines around some of the coastlines are provided for comparative purposes worth inspection and indicate that Senex was aware of other geographers' work although he was not in agreement. A good and attractive example of English cartography from the early eighteenth century.
