Place Published: Antwerp

Description: View. Uncolored engraving. Images measures 7.25" x 10.5".

Comments: Beautiful impression from Stradanus' "Americae Retectio", circa 1615. The scene depicts Amerigo Vespucci representing the Old World explorers as he wakes up a Native American from her hammock slumber. Local flora and fauna dot the background, as well as natives having a cannibalistic roast. Johannes Stradanus or van der Straat, (1523-1605) was a Flemish artist but spent much of his life in Florence. Stradanus sent his original drawings of "Nova Reperta" ("New Inventions"), a Renaissance celebration of recent discoveries both scientific and geographical, to Antwerp where they were first engraved and published by Phillipe Galle circa 1600. This edition was republished by Galle's son. Stain to center right, slight glue residue and hinges along top margin.
