Lot Details
HONDIUS, HENRICUS & FRANCIS JOLLAIN.
Nova totius terrarum orbis geographica ac hydrographica tabula. Paris: Jollain, c.1671-3. Copper-engraved map, hand-colored, 568 x 426 mm. Few little edge-chips, a little spotting in margins, near fine.

Rare double-hemisphere world map, in a decorative surround incorporating celestial maps, tables, and a calendar. The map includes the discovery of the Le Maire straight at the tip of South America. The St. Lawrence River in North America runs nearly the length of the continent, terminating in a large lake before a mountain range, just east of a peninsular California. Korea is shown as an island. There is a vague, though more properly located, coast of New Guinea. Full hand-coloring, including the cartouches, and several ornamental monsters and ships in the sea. This issue with the Jollain imprint is not identified in Shirley (all issues are rare), but see Shirley 354, 358, 370.
See illustration.
