17th century world map

World map, published around 1664 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, by Dutch mapmaker Joan Blaeu (c.1599- 1673). The Latin title is Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula (new and accurate all world map). Blaeu's maps built on those made by Mercator and Hondius in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The Blaeu maps emphasized fine art and colours, being the most expensive of the time. Two mapmakers are shown at upper right and upper left, together with a wide variety of mythical beings. The poorly-mapped regions include the far north and south, parts of the Americas (left-hand hemisphere), and the Far East. The western coast of Australia (New Holland) was discovered in 1616.

Map of Western Europe, 1590

16th century map of Western Europe. Published around 1590, this map shows the coasts of Western Europe and the Mediterranean, and forms part of a portolan atlas (a collection of navigational charts) by the cartographer Joan Oliva, who was active from 1580-1615. Several compass roses and artworks of sailing ships adorn the oceans, while the coasts are heavily annotated with the names of rivers, ports and bays. The lines on the map are rhumb lines, designed to make it easier to steer a straight course. Although the shape of the British Isles and the Scandinavian coastlines is distorted, maps like this were among the best available at the time.
