    [Map]. Johann Baptista Homann. Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae Ludovicianae, N. Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae, nec non Insularum, Archipelagi Mexicani in America Septentrionali accurata Tabula exhibita a Ioh. Babtista Homann. 22.75" x 19" (sight), matted to an overall size of 28" x 25", Nuremberg, circa 1720. Copper-engraved, hand colored in outline and watercolor wash; black and white cartouches and vignettes.

    This extremely decorative map shows the Great Lakes and Nova Scotia through Central America and Venezuela, and from present day New Mexico to the eastern seaboard. The map is geographically based on an early work by Guillaume de l'Isle. The British colonies are shown to the east of the Appalachians. The map itself is filled with Indian tribes, settlement place names, and villages. The map is embellished with a fine title cartouche depicting two native figures and symbols of America's natural resources. In the center right is a large engraved scene of extensive gold mining operations with Indians bringing treasures to the waiting Europeans.

    Smoothed folds and wrinkling; repair on the bottom edge along the center fold. Else very good.

    Reference: Cumming SE, 137.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
