America, by Theodore de Bry.

This beautifully engraved map follows the style de Bry was becoming known for; he was one of the major influences encouraging the full decoration of maps. Right through the noted Dutch period this fashion was to become prevalent.
The map is largely derived from the Petrus Plancius world map of 1594. He clarifies the coastline of I:Dagoa in the Solomon Islands and interestingly calls the southern continent MAGALLANICA. The information acquired by Cornelis Claesz in 1594 from the Lasso chart is incorporated here in depicting a single insular Newfoundland. It incorporates accurately for the first time the White-le Moyne cartography upon a map of America. VIRGINIA beign placed more correctly further south. The map is hemispherical and supported by a framework upon which stand four important explorers: Christopher Colombus, Amerigo Vespucci, Ferdinand Magellan and Francesco Pizaro. (Burden)
