New. Large and rare old coloured copper engraved chart, covering the region above the Arctic Circle with notations concerning the discoveries made in the region by the Barentz expedition to locate a northern passage to the East Indies between 1594 and 1596. The map is fully engraved with mountains, forests, ships, sea monsters, compass roses and two superb cartouches, each flanked by indigenous people and animals. Jansson's Atlantis Majoris was the first widely disseminated sea atlas of the world published in the Netherlands. Intended to be one of the book's in Jansson's Atlas Maior, the maps are now among the earliest obtainable sea charts of the regions covered, preceding the work of Colom, Theunisz, Lootsman, Goos, Roggeveen and Van Keulen, whose sea atlases came to dominate the market in the second half of the 17th Century.
