World map, 1630, by Henricus Hondius (Dutch, 1597–1651) from the Novus Atlas
This popular baroque-style map was originally designed as a frontispiece to Henricus Hondius’s 1630 revision of the long-lived Mercator/Hondius atlas, a work then being challenged by rival map publishers. The decorations include depictions of the four elements—earth, air, fire, and water—and portraits of Julius Caesar and cartographers Claudius Ptolemy, Gerard Mercator, and Jodocus Hondius Sr.
This map is in the collection of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California.
