This 17th Century English Map of the World is based upon the earlier map of Willem Blaeu by Pieter Van Den Keere. The panels surrounding the map show images of the sun, moon and planets as gods--Luna, Mercury, Venus, Sol, Mars, Jupiter and Saturnus; representations of fire air, water and earth in human form; representations of the seasons--spring, summer, autumn and winter--as humans; and the 7 wonders of the ancient world. This is one of the most striking and highly sought after of all world maps.
