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. His style is immediately recognisable on this map of the Caribbean region with a vignette of European men loading ships with local produce, an elaborate title cartouche and another with explanatory notes. A finely engraved and uncommon map.
