Antique Map Auction Sale No. 94 - closed 3/7/2001
A fine miniature world map on an oval projection. The map is based on Cornelis Claesz's 1598 map illustrating the circumnavigation of Cavendish. In the north, below 'Terra Septentrionalis Incognita', is an apparent navigable passage with the remnant of the Sea of Verrazzano protruding into the North American continent. In the south is the large southern continent. 'Quivera regnum' occupies a protrusion above the peninsular California. The map is surrounded by an attractive scrolled border with birds and flowers. Ref: Shirley #220. On the full title page with German text.
