As noted by Shirley, the map is elegantly engraved on copper with typical Italian taste and elegance. A broad land mass links western North America to Asia and is labelled'incognita (unknown). A long river flows across most of North America, the region of New England curiously rendered by modern knowledge. The Nile river in Africa has its source far in the south, in a range of mountains no doubt intended to be Mts. South America has an incorrect prominent southern westward bump.This engraved plate was not used again after this 1599 printing and this map apparently has no further appearances or printings. As noted by Shirley, this map plate marks the first tiome a double hemisphere world map appeared within an atlas. In near VG or better condition, some typical faint minor "show-through" scarcely worthy of mention, tiny hole backed with matching old paper near bottom of centerfold in wide blank margin, overall the image is clean, well preserved with a fine patina and visual appeal. Original fold line as issued. 9 1/4" x 7 1/4".
