Orbis Terrae Novissima


Engraved by Jodocus Hondius in 1602    for the Parisian publisher Jean Le Clerc

A little known twin hemisphere chart that is of great charm. Includes names of winds, fascinating charts detailing the phases of the moon and climate zones, an astronomy diagram and a magnificent compass. Note the large unknown area to the south. A wonderful record of how the world was understood at the start of the 1600’s by the eminent scientists and geographers of the time.  Printed by The Old Map Company for our good friends Antica Editions in Lyon, France and made available here with their kind permission.
