Novissima & exactissima Totius Orbis Terrarum...
Superb copy in period colors of David Funcke's double hemisphere world map.
We know little about the author except that he was active from 1680 to 1705 and that his maps are rare on the market.
The map is based on the 1668 map by Frederick De Wit. It is illustrated with four large allegorical scenes representing the four elements: fire, air, water and earth. These allegories are separated at the top and bottom by two small pole maps.
