The Blaeu Map - Southeast.
Virginia partis australis,
et Floridae... Amsterdam, c.1640. Fine
hand color. Excellent condition. 15
1/8" x 19 3/4"
A beautiful map based
upon the Mercator-Hondius map of 1606.
"The North Carolina area is correctly
reduced in size...This gives a more
adequate representation of the South
Carolina coast, which was greatly contracted
in the Mercator map." Native American
figures artistically adorn the cartouche
along with sailing ships, and cherubs.
