MAP, World, Lotter
Item Details
Description
World. Tobias Conrad Lotter, Mappa Totius Mundi Adornata Juxta Observationes Dnn Academiae Regalis Scientiarum..., 1772 (circa). Hand Color. This large, handsome, and uncommon map is based on the work of the famous French cartographer Guillaume Delisle. The northwest coast of North America is left completely blank. The routes of several important explorers and their discoveries are marked, including Magellan, Tasman, Noort, Gaytan, Quiros, and Mendana. Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand are only partially mapped. One of the most interesting features of the map is the appearance in the North Atlantic of the mythical island of Frislandia, which disappeared from most maps in the late seventeenth century. The map is surrounded by two polar spheres and a delightful baroque title cartouche featuring the allegorical female representations of the continents.
Condition
Contemporary color in the map with later color in the cartouche. There is very light soiling and professional repairs to several chips and tears along the sides of the sheet, with a few of the tears entering up to 1" into image. Grade: B+
Dimensions
16.9 x 25.7 in
