This is a 100% genuine original antique map. If you like this map, then please message me with an offer for me to consider.
I cannot stress enough how beautiful this map is up close compared to the photos that you see. Note that the photos do not do the map justice. This is truly an incredible map to behold!!This is your chance to own a map that can be the centerpiece of your collection. This gorgeous and extremely rare map never comes up for sale in this condition. Bellin's popular world map is presented on Mercator's projection with two fine compass roses orienting the chart.
North America is shown with a very pronounced River of the West connecting through a series of rivers and lakes from Lake Superior to the Pacific - representing the elusive Northwest Passage. A portion of the Asian coastline is depicted a short distance from the supposed western coast. The Russian discoveries in the North Pacific are not yet shown, although there is a note about the voyages of 1743.Able Tasman's new discoveries in New Zealand and Australia are shown. Australia is labeled Hollandia Nova with Nova Guinea linked to the mainland by the Carpentier coastline. Terre de Diemen , also labeled I. Tasman , is connected to the mainland by conjectural dotted lines. A large, decorative title cartouche completes the composition. Published by Peter de Hondt with titles in French and Dutch in lower margin. This is one of my personal favorite maps that I have ever owned.
My price is based on the rare condition and scarcity of this map. This map is from my personal collection. I will entertain offers as well.
Strikingly interesting and highly detailed map. The map depicts in great detail all of the geographical information known at the time the map was published.
Note that many geographical details have changed since the map was published and were not accurate compared to today's modern maps because things were fully discovered and accurately mapped yet. Map symbols and details include individual towns, rivers, lakes, bays, harbors, islands, mountains, forests, roads and other important places as shown on the map in this listing. The map is in excellent condition considering the age and rarity of the map. The overall size of the map sheet is.
Approximately 27 inches by 20 inches. All of my maps are investment grade and collectible quality. The value of this original will only increase over time. Many people are now starting to offer cheap reproductions/copies.
I DO NOT SELL REPRODUCTIONS, FAKES OR COPIES!!! Please also view all of my other maps for sale at very reasonable prices. Please review all of my positive feeback of satisfied winners from past auctions. May God Bless you and your family!!
