The Americas.

America North and South Newly represented... Homann, Johann Baptist America North and South Newly represented... "Totius Americae Septrionalis et Meridionalis Novissima Representatio quam ex singulis Geographorum Tabulis collecta luci publicae accommodavit .." Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1720
Copper engraved map of the continent of America by Johann Bapt. Homann from his "Grosser Atlas". Original colour, verso blank.
Decorative title cartouche and vignette showing native Americans and the fauna and flora of the country, with another cartouche surrounding a description of discoveries, black and white as issued. The title cartouche is based upon De Fer's landmark map of 1699. The top cartouche is based upon De L'Isle's 1703 map of Canada. The map is a revision of the elder Homann's 1710 map of the Americas. After his death in 1724, his son (Johann Christoph Homann) re-engraved the plate to correct the western coastline of North America, shown here extending very far west and north, with very little detail. California is no longer shown as an island, although the remnants of the interior sea can be seen near the Pais de Moozemleck, and a hint of a hoped for Northwest Passage is beginning to take shape. The Great Lakes are taking shape, being actively explored by the French fur traders and Hudson Bay Company. Good dark impression, generally bright and clean; slight soiling to lower corners; short centrefold split at lower margin [40m just entering scale lines with old tape repair to verso]; slight unobtrusive vertical crease to right of centrefold.

In 1635, Pierre Belain d'Esnambuc, French governor of the island of St. Kitts, landed in the harbour of St. Pierre with 150 French settlers after being driven off St. Kitts by the English. D'Esnambuc claimed Martinique for the French King Louis XIII and the French "Compagnie des Îles de l'Amérique" (Company of the American Islands), and established the first European settlement at Fort Saint-Pierre (now St. Pierre).
In 1636, the indigenous Caribs rose against the settlers to drive them off the island in the first of many skirmishes. The French successfully repelled the natives and forced them to retreat to the eastern part of the island, on the Caravelle Peninsula in the region then known as the Capesterre. When the Carib revolted against French rule in 1658, the Governor Charles Houel de Petit-Pré retaliated with war against them. Many were killed; those who survived were taken captive and expelled from the island. Some Carib had fled to Dominica or St. Vincent, where the French agreed to leave them at peace. Good impression, generally clean & bright; slight very light offsetting; tiny paper faults to left blank margin,and slight thinning in the image of Martinique; tiny pinprick to centrefold; upper general title in margin just shaved;old ink number to upper right corner.
