 World & Continent Sets 

CLOPPENBURG, Johannes. [The World and Continents from Cloppenburg's 'Atlas Minor']
Typus Orbis Terrarum; America noviter delineata; Asia; Nova Europae Descriptio; Africæ nova Tabula. Amsterdam, 1632, Latin text edition. Coloured. Five plates, Each c.190 x 260mm. Worm hole in right edge filled on all plates, otherwise a very fine set with dark impression.
Scarce miniature versions of maps of the world and four continents by Jodocus Hondius. They appeared in Cloppenburg's edition of Mercator's 'Atlas Minor', with maps engraved in slightly larger format than standard Dutch pocket atlases by Pieter van den Keere. The borders of the continents are unillustrated, but the world has the Four Elements represented by a cornucopia, bird of paradise, salamander and a sea monster in the corners, two scenes from the Garden of Eden in the upper cusp and the Last Judgement below. First published in 1630, there was a third edition in 1636 before a hiatus until an edition in 1673, suggesting the plates were suppressed. BURDEN: 225, first state of three.
