America Australis 1699 : H. Scherer

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Heinrich Scherer (1628-1704) was a Jesuit, geographer, and professor of mathematics in Munich. His "Atlas Novus", published in eight volumes from 1702-1710, was an unusual publication featuring maps of all areas of the known world, indicating their religious tendencies with an emphasis on promulgating the Catholic church and faith. This is an interesting map of South America filled with towns and mountains represented pictorially. Between the Orinoco and Amazon rivers is the fictitious Lake of Parime with the mythical city of Dorado on its western shore. Ships sail the seas, and a title cartouche is decorated with cows, sheep, monkeys and a parrot. A finely engraved and uncommon map.
