Nr. 702: Insulae Americanae

The C. Danckerts map in rare 2nd state

“Insulae Americanae Nempe: Cuba, Hispaniola, Iamaica, Pto. Rico, Lucania, Antillae vulgo Caribae Barlo- et sotto-Vento”; with a separate running title in Dutch at top “Stoel des Oorlogs in America..”. Engraved double page map in brilliant original colour after C. Danckerts, issued by Reinier & Josua Ottens, Amsterdam c. 1727 or later. (PM) 50,5 x 58,5 cm.

Not a mere reissue but in many respects improved. So the shipping routes from Europe to Cartagena and Havana and back are now shown; many additional place names have been added. The war the Dutch title refers to is either King William’s War (1689-1697) or (and?) Queen Anne’s War (1702-1713). - A near perfect example of this attractive map in a rare state. Bright original colour. Wide margins. Excellent.
