Notes: [Old World Auctions] From "Atlas Novus", This map was originally published in Jansson's important sea atlas, Atlantis Majoris Quinta Pars, Orbem Maritimum, the first of its kind intended for the general market, and then incorporated into his later publications. The chart covers the northern Atlantic Ocean with the eastern coast of North America, the West Indies, and the coasts of Europe and North Africa. Cartographically it is based on the previous maps produced by Hondius and Jansson, with a few notable improvements.
