Hondius & Mercator's Famous Map of the American South
Item Details
Description
HONDIUS, Jocodus (1563-1612) & MERCATOR, Gerard (1512-1594).
Virginia Item et Floridae Americae Provinciarum, nova Descriptio.
Engraved Map with original hand color.
Amsterdam: Hondius, 1606 from Mercator's Atlas.
18" x 21 1/2" sheet, 26" x 29 1/2" framed.

Though this map by Hondius is based on two earlier maps, those of White (1590) and Le Moyne (1591), subsequent cartographers usually followed this work rather than the earlier maps. It thus became the most important map of the region until the Ogilby-Moxon "Discription of Carolina" c. 1672; and its influence, both direct and indirect, extends into the middle of the 18th-century.
