Description:
This map of the Americas is of particular significance, having been published by a woman. One year after her husband's death, Anne Seile instructed the engraver Robert Vaughan to engrave a set of maps of the continents similar to those engraved by her husband for Peter Heylin's,'Cosmographie' in 1652. Siele then issued a third edition of the Cosmographie containing these maps, which have minor geographical revisions. [AMER2272]
