Title: Totius Americae Septentrionalis et ...
Publisher: Norimberg c. 1740
Publication Date: 1740
Approximately. 20 1/8" x 23 1/2". Single sheet laid on stiff board and wrapped in clear plastic. Colored map of the western hemisphere c. 1740 showing California as a peninsula rather than an island and with several place names in Baja California but no details or place names in Alta California [despite the published explorations of Cabrillo and Vizcaino, illustrating the slow diffusion of knowledge in the days before rapid transportation and electronic transmission]. In fact the map shows the northwest coast of America extending far to the north and west with no cartographic details and the latin term "Terra Esonis Incognita" printed therein. Faint vertical crease in the center from previous folding, otherwise in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 3966
