A majestic large format set of World & Continents

JAILLOT, Alexis-Hubert.

[Set of World & 5 Continents.]
Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, c.1700. Original colour. 6 plates, each printed on two sheets and conjoined, totals c. 580 x 880mm.

Laid on linen, as originally issued.

A fine set of large and decorative maps, from Mortier's issue of Jaillot's 'Atlas Nouveau', consisting of a double-hemisphere World, Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and South America.
While all the maps have Jaillot's name on them the world is an uncommon a new plate after Witsen. California is back on the mainland but it has a long baja on both sides of the peninsula, a possibly unique depiction. Further north is a huge 'Mer de l'Ouest' and a North-West Passage. In the other hemisphere Tasmania and New Guinea are joined by a hypothetical coastline, and Ezo is part of mainland Asia.
The other maps are Sanson's maps, redrawn on a larger scale by Jaillot at the request of Sanson's heirs. The North America still has the large island of California.

SHIRLEY: World 621, 'a new two-sheet world map... of special interest'; NORWICH: Africa 46; McLAUGHLIN: 55.
