America Sive India Nova Ad Magnae Gerardi Mercatoris ... : M. Mercator

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A famous hemispherical map of the Americas designed and engraved by Michael Mercator, grandson of the great Gerard Mercator. The map shows two of Mercator's four polar islands. Other mythical islands include Frisland and St. Brendan's Island in the Atlantic. Other curiosities are the bulge in the southwest of South America, the Great Southern Continent and a very large New Guinea. Three inset maps depict the Gulf Coast, Hispaniola and Cuba with the Bahamas and southern Florida, all areas of particular Spanish influence. A most attractive example of this important map. Latin text editions appeared between 1595 and 1619, this issue with the pagination of no 39, would be dated 1607/8/11 or 1612, however, the very strong and clear print impression would suggest an earlier, rather than later publishing date.
