Nova totius Terrarum orbis tabula 1690s

By Frederick de Wit

Justus Danckerts’ richly embellished map of the world is based upon De Wit’s world map of 1668. The map includes four lively allegorical scenes, representing the elements. Fire is shown by war and destruction, air by the heavens, earth by harvesting and husbandry, and water by ships and a spouting whale.
