Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

c. 1635

Maker: Blaeu.

Rare and desirable antique map of Bermuda by Willem Blaeu, c. 1635. Features a striking decorative cartouche and decorative distance keys. Includes remarkable detail for the island, with a complete list of land owners divided by Tribe. The map is based upon John Norwood's survey of 1618, as first published by John Speed in 1626-27. Also interesting to note: in the lower left is Hispaniola, along the top are Florida, Virginia with Roanoak, Cape Cod, and New England, while at the center under the cartouche is a tiny Bermuda. This was done as an ingenious way to place Bermuda in its geographic context. Very good overall antique condition with a fold as issued. Overall toning and a few very minor stains and wrinkles. Approx. 16 x 20.5 inches to the neatline. **SOLD**
