[MAPS-AMERICA] HOMANN, JOHANN BAPTIST. Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Floridae, Novae Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae.
Nuremberg: Homann, n.d. [circa 1712 or later]. Hand-colored engraved map. Neatlines approximately 19 x 23 inches (48 x 58 cm) but with full margins; in a very large plexi-glass shadowbox frame with plaque. Loosely mounted at the corners to backing but not laid-down, folds, and a few marginal short tears, creases, and spots, unexamined out of frame, a dark impression with rich color.
An important map of the kingdom of Mexico, a large region to the north labeled Nova Mexico, and retaining the name Florida on the expansive Louisiana area (this altered to Ludovicianae in later states). The map features two large vignettes: one a naval battle and the other a gold mine scene with natives exchanging goods with explorers. This is an early state of the map, without the privilege in the imprint and with "Floridae" retained in the title.


Estimate: $500 - $800
