Original coloured, copper engraved map of Mexico from volume 2 of Joan Blaeu's "Theatrum Orbis terrarum, sive atlas novus .pars secunda." Double page; folio; Latin text to verso.
Large decorative title catouche ; ships and compass rose to sea.
Map of Mexico extending from just north of Mazatlan to Acapulco and from Tehuacan to the Sierra Madres, showing Mexico City, Puebla (Angelorum Civitas), Colima, Campostella, Purificatio and Mechoacan as the major cities of the time.
Based on Ortelius's map of 1579 which became the basis for many of the seventeenth century maps of the area.
Despite the implications in the title, the map does not cover all of the provinces of New Spain, only a portion of modern Mexico. At the time, the region was described as being rich in gold & silver, with pearl-fishing carried on in the coastal regions. The numerous salt lakes produced the finest salt by means of evaporation, and much was made of the sugar-cane cultivated here.
In the east of the mapped area, below the large title cartouche may be seen the area of Mexico city, situated on the shores of a large lake, described as an ample city, queen of all the cities in the New World. Although the mapmaker gave no clues, the small lozenge shaped symbols to the left of the cartouche probably indicate gold or silver mines.
The elaborate title cartouche is surrounded by the Spanish Royal Coat of arms. Bright original outline colour; good impression; light damp stain to edges of blank margins, far from image.

The North Pole.

Polus Arcticus. Blaeu, Guillaume & Jean. Polus Arcticus. "Regiones Sub Polo Artico. Auctore Guiljelmo Blaeu." Amsterdam Apud Johannem Guiljelmi F. Blaeu. c1645
Original coloured, copper engraved map of the North Pole from Joan Blaeu's "Theatrum Orbis terrarum, sive atlas novus ." Double page; folio; Latin text to verso.
Blaeu`s beautifully engraved map of the arctic was first issued c.1638 and is a precise copy of a map issued by Janssonius the previous year. Burden notes "even the cartouches are the same. But Janssonius has placed his imprint in the lower right cartouche; Blaeu has the scale here." Along with the original Janssonius, Blaeu's map "provides the first detailed summary of the 16th and early 17th century Canadian arctic discoveries" (Kershaw).
To the left we see the discoveries of captain Thomas James of Bristol along the southern and western shores of the Hudson Bay during his expedition of 1631/32 (with, among others, "James his Bay"). Spitsbergen is drawn as it was known after the Danish expeditions of 1605-1607.
The map provides the best view of the period of discoveries in the area of Hudson's and Baffin's Bays as well as Davis Strait. It is a vast improvement over the Mercator map of the region, whose North Pole was filled with mythical islands.
In its day this map was the most up-to-date map of the North Pole region available. Bright original outline colour; good impression; light stain to lower right blank margin.

Decorative title cartouche; ships to sea; elephants, ostriches and monkeys to the interiors of the countries.
Two Ptolemaic lakes, Zair and Zaflan are shown in the southern portion of the map as being the main source of the Nile. Lake Niger is shown as the source of the Niger River, flowing westward. The map contains numerous coastal place names such as Mozambique Island, Quiloa, Mombaza, and Melinde indicating the importance of the area to both Arab and Portuguese traders and explorers from other countries

Prester John was believed to be a Christian king of enormous power and splendor. The legend first appeared in the 1100's with his kingdom believed to be in Asia, but as the area was further explored, the location of this mythical kingdom moved to the Middle East and eventually present day Ethiopia. This legend persisted for centuries. When Vasco de Gama went on his voyage from Mozambique north in the 1400's, he heard that "Preste Johan" ruled the interior. Original outline colour; good impression; light browning to edges of plate mark due to former framing; light toning to edges of page. Split to lower centre fold [not entering plate] repaired with archival tape, to verso.
