"Americae Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descriptio"
Published by Abraham Ortelius, 1589
Published in 1589, with slightly different coloration than its 1587 sister map, this superior recreation of the historically important 16th century map by Abraham Ortelius, with superb hand colouring, shows the New World with the latest information derived from explorers.
Sailing ships, sea monsters, and an elaborate title cartouche enhances this important map. The Great Lakes in North America have yet to be discovered. This map, which is considered to be one of the most desirable maps of the Americas, shows the great southern continent according to Ptolemy.
