QUAD, MATTHIAS. 1557-1613.
Novi orbis pars borealis, America scilicet, complectens Floridam, Baccalaon, Canadam.... Cologne: [1600]. Hand-colored copper-engraved map, 239 x 303 mm, German text on verso. Pale, even browning. Matted and framed to 17 by 19 inches.

Attractive map with much interior detail (much of it fanciful, as usual), and a long caption giving an overview of discoveries in North America. Shows a peninsular California and a particularly inviting Northwest Passage.
