Amsterdam: Nicolaas Goetzee, 1749. 1st Edition. Very Good. Item #13425
An uncommonly nice and beautiful example of this scarce 18th-century map of the 'Old World' showing the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa divided among the sons of Noah.
The continental outlines are shown according to 18th century knowledge, with interiors reflecting Ptolemaic models.
The map includes a key in a drape-style cartouche and the title cartouche incorporates a large landscape showing the migrations setting out from the Tower of Babel and a large tree representing Noah's descendants.
Engraved by Jan van Jagen and published in a Statenbijbel by Nicolaas Goetzee.
Mild age toning around the edges with a few minor nicks along edges as well.
This map measures 21 5/8" X 17" and is perfect for framing and display!
