    Charming miniature world map on an oval projection, based on Ortelius. The large, mythical continent of Terra Australis fills the southern portion of the map, incorporating New Guinea. There are just a few place names noted in the map, including Anian, Tolm, Norumbega, Virginia and Florida. The map is similar to the one Bertius supplied for Barent Langenes' Caert-Thresoor except this plate does not contain the signature of Jodocus Hondius as the engraver. Strapwork designs fill the corners with the title above and the quote from Psalms, "Domini Est Terra Et Plenitudo Eius" (the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof) at bottom. Latin table of contents on verso.

Condition Description: A crisp impression with attractive color. There is minor marginal soiling and a few tiny worm tracks all confined to blank margins.

Ref: Shirley #290; King (2nd ed.) pp. 96-99; Van der Krogt (Vol. III) #0001:342A.
