Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula Auctore F. de Wit
43,5x55,5cm - later colour - excellent condition
From: 'De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Wereld... By Hendrik Doncker... Anno 1660
(Shirley # 421).
The two hemispheres of De Wit's first world map are reduced with minor amendments from Blaeu's classic wall map of 1648. De Wit has not included the large inland sea in North America nor the piece of land marked Yedso north of Japan.
A decoratively coloured and attractive map, not very common and thus rarely found.
