Paris: Sanson. Very Good. 1652. A very rare map from Nicolas Sanson. Imprint bears the date of 1652, although it is possible that this copy came from an atlas in the later 1600s. Light toning and edgewear, with one corner slightly chipped. Light soil on lower margin. Hand-colored boundaries. Map borders measure 14" x 20 3/4". California is shown as an island, and Terre Australe is a vague line encircling the Antarctic. Terre de Iesso is the name given to the land mass northwest of North America. Sanson (1600-1667) published many map versions of the world and is known as "the father of French cartography." ; 16 1/2" x 22 1/4" . (Inventory #: 010748tw)
