Americae nova Tabula


The third state of Blaeu's magnificent map of the Americas, this is a landmark document that summarizes "the general European view of the western hemisphere in the early 17th century." A classic golden-age "carte-a-figures," the map includes an inset of Greenland and is surrounded by nine New World city plans along the top and ten vignettes of New World natives along either side. From the Atlantis Appendix of 1630, this is one of the great expressions of the cartographer's art, in a superb exemplar.
