Bermuda, 1630, Mappa Æstivarum Insularum, Barmudas, Blaeu Map



An early-seventeenth-century map of Bermuda, entitled, Mappa Aestivarum Insularum Alias Barmudas, and created by Willem Janszoon Blaeu. The map follows the cartography and layout of John Norwood’s survey and of the later John Speed version. Blaeu’s variant of the Bermuda map stands out with a centrally displayed imposing title cartouche of Poseidon, flanked by sea creatures and holding a ship and a trident. The actual map is a cadastral survey with tables of lists of the lot owners on the bottom of the layout. (The current copy is larger in size with ample clean margins. It was specially recreated with the discerning collector and framer in mind.)
