DANCKERTS, Justus. [A superbly-decorated 17th century double-hemisphere world map]
Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula. Amsterdam, c.1685. Original colour. 490 x 590mm. Two pin holes in left margin, otherwise fine.
A double-hemisphere world with two polar spheres in the cusps.

SHIRLEY: 529.

Accuratissima Totius Regni Hispaniæ Tabula Per Iustinium Danckerts. Amsterdam, c. 1705. Original colour. 500 x 580mm. A very good example.
A splendid map of Iberia in fine original colour, showing topography, settlements and regional divisions. With a decorative title cartouche surmounted by the Spanish Royal Arms, and flanked by a personification of peace and disporting putti and mermaids.
