Description: [Hondius/Southeast America] VIRGINIAE ITEM ET FLORIDAE AMERICAE PROVINCIARUM, NOVA DESCRIPTIO or a New Description of Virginia and Florida of Provincial America. [From a French-language edition of Hondius’s “Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas Sive Cosmographicae” [1628]: French text on verso with page numbers “697” and “700.” Right side of verso signed “Oooooooo.” Burden 151. Based largely on earlier maps by Theodore de Bry. Jodocus Hondius moved the inland Appalachian sea (“Lacus aquae dulcis…”) north, probably in response to Cornelis Wytfliet’s map, and its outlet, the St. John’s River (“R de May”) flows southeast. The most prominent engraved decorations are the engraved ships, ocean monsters, Indians and the views of Jamestown on either side of the cartouche, but a wild turkey is engraved north of the compass rose. Double-page. 13 ½ x 18 ¾ in. Outer edge of border nearly coincides with plate mark. Does not have “A. 1588.” Hand colored. Image near fine. Moderate, somewhat uneven trimming to margin (well outside plate mark). 2 hinging bits to upper margin of verso. Mapseller’s blindseal at lower left: “L’Amateur O.P.I. Bs. Aires.” Penciling at upper and lower right (in margins).
