Description:

World map on Mercator&#8217s projection based on Blaeu&#8217s current world map with insets of the south and north poles. The seas are decorated with ships, compass roses and galleons. The lower corners have insets of the north and south poles. Noted at the top of the map is the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and Terra Australis Incognito is shown as extending along the entire lower area of the map. From Neuwe Archontologia Cosmica. Matthaus Merian, was a publisher and engraver renowned for his town views. This world map from, Neuwe Archontologia Cosmica…, on Mercator&#8217s projection with insets of the south and north poles was based on Blaeu&#8217s current world map published in his atlas in 1630. The seas are decorated with ships, compass roses and galleons. The lower corners have insets of the north and south poles. Germanic script for the text is used and the Latin title is repeated in Gothic script below. Noted at the top of the map is the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus&#8217s in 1492 and Terra Australis Incognito is shown as extending along the entire lower area of the map. The naming of Beach the northern tip of Terra Incognito, can be traced back to Fine&#8217s 1532 world map which was based on information of Marco Polo&#8217s incorrectly scribed accounts.
