"Nova Tabula Americae Sic dictae ab Americo Vesptio Florentino qui Emmanuelis Regis auspicijs eam Anno 1497…"

Type of print: Copper etching

Color: Original hand coloring

Author: Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708)

Engraver: Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724)

Published separately in Nuremberg, ca. 1697

Characteristics: Very rare map of North and South America. Seldom on the market. With decorative cartouche depicting native Americans in various poses. Map is embellished with indigenous animals of North America, Slave punishment, a battle scene of natives in Brazil, rich sail ship traffic on Atlantic and Pacific, a vague coast line idea of Australia. California is depicted as an island. This map is an early witness of J.B. Homann's mastership in map etching, which, in 1723, he had turned into a profitable business as he produced his famous atlas. Both, Sandrart and Homann were at the crest of German map makers as the center of gravity with regard to map making shifted from Amsterdam to Nuremberg and Augsburg.

Condition: Map is printed on nice thick paper. Left, top and right margins have been professionally added. This individually published map had been bound into a private map collection. On reverse side: No text print. Book joint for private binding. Minimal soiling in margins. Superb original hand coloring.
