  • Americae Descriptio

    A fine engraving with a nice perspective on developing discovery. While the Americas are still being grasped, with only a rudimentary understanding of waterways and with a large island of California, we can still identify major coastal figures. But once looking out into the Pacific Ocean the early hints of places like New Zealand and Japan are just beginning to appear as portions of coasts floating in the distant seas. Throughout the oceans are illustrations of sailing ships of various designs, exploring throughout.

    Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 8.25 x 6 (inches).
