JANSSON, Joannes (1588-1664) and Henricus HONDIUS (1597-1651). America noviter delineata. [Amsterdam:] 1632 [or later].
Engraved map of the Americas, image 410 x 552 mm (472 x 568 mm sheet). Inset maps of the North and South Poles, galleons and sea monsters, three decorative borders, native figures along sides and town views along the top, German text on verso. (Upper right corner with chip to plate as usual, some minor staining).
Third state of Janssons map of the Americas derived from Jodocus Hondius' map of 1618. “This very rare map is most easily distinguished by the chipped top right hand corner of the plate that appears in virtually all known examples. The figures bordering the sides have been reversed.” (Burden 207).
