[World Map, Bible]: A Map of all the Earth and how after the Flood it was divided among the Sons of Noah

by Moxon, Joseph

Condition: See description


Amsterdam: Visscher, Nicholas (Nicolaus), 1685. Very good, early color (perhaps some recent enhancement), few tiny worm holes, minor restoration at lower right (no image loss) and flattened center fold. Minmial browning margins. The date is approximate. Numerous biblical vignettes, some with Hebrew lettering. This was done for a Dutch bible, this one published by Visscher in Amsterday. Shirley's entry 457 is a similar map but without the Visscher imprint (and this issue does not have the tabular information in the lower central area. North America is labeled with "Japhet," and "Eden" is shown towards the cetner of the depiction of Asia. The vignettes are quite decorative. Moxon was a print and globe-maker, and he was the first tradesman to be elected to the Royal Society (online Dictionary of National Biography). The image measures 32 x 46 cm (18 x 12.5 inches), and has good margins..
