Map Of The Americas 1640
Photograph - Photograph
17th century map of the Americas. Published in Paris around 1640, this map is by the Flemish cartographer Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612). The map shows the geography of the Americas, the New World being explored by Europeans. Most of Central and South America, and southern North America, were under Spanish control, but large parts of eastern North America were part of the French colony of New France. The map title is at lower right, with insets at lower left and upper center showing the southern and northern polar regions. Artworks of sailing ships are shown on the sea, along with sea monsters. The inscriptions are in Latin.
