Lot Details

Lot 204
LAET, JOHANNES DE Florida, et Regiones Vicinae.
Leiden: circa 1630. Double-page engraved map on watermarked laid paper. Plate marks 11 1/8 x 14 1/8 inches (28 x 36 cm), with slightly larger margins. An unrestored, lightly toned example with some scattered spotting in the image and one small darker spot near the word Golfo, two small neat labels in the lower margin hidden under mat, archivally hinged, offered with frame or matted.

The rare map of Florida from Joannes de Laet's Nieuwe Wereldt ofte Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien, engraved Hessel Gerritsz. The main body of today's Florida is named Tegesta provinc after a native tribe living on the southwest coast (the name Florida is applied to the larger region). The map draws on both the cartography of Jacques le Moyne and the nomenclature of Ortelius, both decades old by 1630, and the map greatly influenced those that followed by Blaeu, Janssonius and Sanson. Burden, The Mapping of America, 232.
