Item Details
Description
World.- Visscher (Claes Janszoon) Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula Auctore N. I. Piscator, magnificent carte-a-figures world map on Mercator's projection, an early edition with the dating of Columbus' voyage erroneously described as 1592 to 1599, decorated with panels surrounding the map that include twelve Roman emperors to the top and bottom, six groups of national figures and six vignettes of principal cities to the left and right borders, and each of the four corners with female allegorical representations of the continents, engraving with full hand-colouring heightened with touches of gum arabic, an excellent well inked and early impression, on laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the platemark at the lower edge but expertly re-margined, several small marginal losses and tears expertly restored, notably the upper corners, some minor rubbing and abrasion just off the coast of Florida with careful ink facsimile to some letters, and small repaired perforation to just below Guinea, both areas only really visible verso and under raking light, minor surface dirt, unframed, [Amsterdam, 1652]

⁂ An excellent impression of this scarce world map, known as The Twelve Caesars World Map, both richly decorated with fine engraved details and finished with full hand-colouring.
