Description:
With van Loon's chart, this is one of the first two folio maps devoted to the cartographic phenomenon of California as an island. Published in De Zee Atlas ofte Water-Weereld, California is depicted in the Foxe form, often referred to as the second Sanson-model. The mainland coast extends north-east towards the 'Straet Anian', encouraging the belief in a North West Passage.

This is one of the most desirable maps available showing California as an island. [USA8027]
