honorat, et HÆC suis Cultoribus multos FAVORES &
Beneficia præstat. 1699
Stunning map of North America with proportionally one of the largest depictions of the Caligfornia Island. The map was oddly printed in 3 states . this one seems to be the earliest.
Sherer oriented this map to a more south westerly positionn and bestowed a more elaborate cartouche depicting a native looking to the heavens.
Cartographically, it shows the same topography as his other maps. From a bibliographic
standpoint, it can only be speculated why Sherer chose to create additional maps of the same area.
Very good condition except for some professionally repaired worm holes barely visible but reflceted in the price.
Excellent hand colour
