The first of two Maps of America published by the Homann family, here shown with bold heavy sharp detailing, including a historic depiction of California as a large peninsula.

A richly ornamented map of North and South America, shown as known at the time. Much of the American northwest is designated as Unknown Territory. There are two lovely, uncolored cartouches.

The cartouche at upper left shows Native American Indians, a missionary and a mythological figure. Inside the cartouche, written in Latin, is information on the exploration of America. Minor chips and blemishes. Overall, an excellent bright and vibrant attractive map, professionally modern framed and ready for display.
