Large folio map of the continent, the standard French map in mid-seventeenth century. One of the most striking features of the map is the extensive coastline of America, from Royaume d'Anian to Sierra Nievada, adopted from the reported discoveries of Joao de Gama. Japan is shown on the Teixiera model and Korea is depicted as an island. The map extends to include much of the eastern coast of Africa. Decorated with a strapwork title cartouche. Engraved by A. Peyrounin.
