Artist's Description

: An extraordinary map of monumental proportions, this Sanson and Jaillot's 1691 decorative map of the world on a double hemisphere projection. This is the first state of the fourth plate of this map. Covers the entire world according to its 17th century conception. Elaborate allegorical cartouches appear at top center and bottom center detailing cherubs riding dolphins - the symbols of the Dauphin of France. This map is magnificently colored with extensive gold foiling used throughout both as accent elements and to denote cities. This type of elaborate colorization theme is highly unusual as gold foil gilting and color work of this caliber was generally only applied to maps that were commissioned for royalty or the high nobility. The is the only example of this map with such colorization we have ever seen. Our survey of this map will begin in North America where California is depicted as an island. The idea of an insular California first appeared as a work of fiction in Garci Rodrigue...
