Carte Generale De Toutes Les Costes Du Monde : J. Covens & C. Mortier

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine example of an interesting and rare large scale world map, on two sheets joined. In 1693 Pierre Mortier produced a fine two sheet world map in his counterfeit version of Hubert Jaillot's Paris published "Neptune Francois". Around 1700 the map was updated to reflect the cartography of Nicolas Witsen, mapmaker and connected to the Russian court. This revised map was itself copied by engraver Balthasar Ruyter for publishers Jean Covens and Cornielle Mortier with a newly delineated north-east Asia, redrawn Canadian Arctic and an indication of the mythical strait connecting the north Pacific with Hudson Bay. California, typically, appears as a large island and only one Great Lake is shown. However the outlines of Africa and many other coastlines are accurately defined and well detailed. The map is distinctively and finely engraved and, with strong wash colour, very impressive.
