    This decorative double hemisphere world map was issued in a Dutch Bible published by the Keur family. It is based on Visscher's Bible map of 1663 and is surrounded by nearly identical engravings, which include numerous exotic animals and four female allegorical representations of the continents. California is depicted as an island with a flat northern coastline labeled Nova Albion. A small island in the vicinity of Alaska is labeled Anian. In Asia, the Great Wall of China is illustrated and the northeastern coastline is severely truncated. Australia, Van Diemens Landt and New Zealand have incomplete coastlines. New Guinea looks as if it may be attached to Australia. Tucked between the cusps of the map are astronomical diagrams illustrating the Copernican and Ptolemaic solar system theories. Dutch text on verso.

Condition Description: A clean and bright example with a strong impression and attractive color. Issued folding with professional repairs to some small separations and tears along the centerfold within the two astronomical diagrams. Professionally remargined at left, top, and right with a minor amount of neatline replaced in facsimile.

Ref: Shirley #498; Poortman & Augusteijn #130 (GII-1).
