A decorative, original color map of North and South America by the famed Hondius publishing house.   This map is noted for its elegant engraving and pleasing layout.  

The copperplate that produced this map was originally prepared by Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1618.  This issue, known in three examples, has decorative borders on all four sides.  There is a 2nd state in c1629-30 with no decorative borders.  A 3rd state was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631.  The map depicted here is the 4th state with the imprint of Janssonius and the addition of the date of 1641.  There was a 5th state in 1652 with the date and the Hondius imprint removed. (Burden, p. 235-6).

This map has Latin text on the verso describing the America.  This map is from Johannes Janssonius' Atlas of 1646-57 with a signature on the verso of "Aaa", based on van der Krogt (p. 715).  An earlier version of this map was produced by Henricus Hondius in 1631. Through the collaboration between Hondius and Janssonius (they were brothers-in-law), Hondius' map was replaced by Janssonius' map in 1641. Henricus Hondius had died in 1638.

Reference:  Burden map #192.  van der Krogt, vol.1, p. 715.
