Copper engraving, mm 490x550, original color. Decorative double hemisphere map of the world, richly embellished with vivid engravings of natural phenomena such as waterspouts, a rainbow, earthquakes, a volcano and with celestial models of the northern and southern hemispheres. The map shows Magellano’s, an incomplete Australia’s coast and only the east coast of New Zealand. In general it shows the typical 18th century geographical knowledge with most of the Pacific incompletely mapped and an incorrect northwest coastline in North America. Johann Baptist Homann was born 1664. He settled his business 1702 in Nuremberg and became the most important map and atlas producer in Germany publishing his first atlas in 1707. After his death 1724, the business was run by his son Johann Christoph and later under the name Homann Heirs until the next century. Very good condition
