$650.00Coronelli--VincenzoAntique-map-of-Cape-Verde-Islands-and-West-AfricaBeautiful antique map of the Cape Verde Islands and West coast of Africa by cartographer and Franciscan monk Vicenzo Coronelli (1650 - 1718). The map was published from Venice in 1692 in Coronelli's atlas, the Atlante Veneto. Highly decorative title cartouche at bottom left with angels holding a large tapestry in front of a decorative garland. Inset of the African island of Goree at upper right corner. Goree was a trading post with some association to the Atlantic slave trade. <br></br> The Cape Verde islands were a stopping and revictualing location for numerous early explorers since their discovery by the Portugese around 1456. In 1522 the famished crew of Ferdinand Magellan's ship Victoria, numebering about two dozen, stopped at the island of Santiago on their return from their record-setting circumnavigation of the earth. A bit more that 60 years later in 1585, Sir Francis Drake attacked and burned the town of Cidade Velha on the island of Santiago. <br></br> Seller's attribution at bottom left reads "Si vende presso Domenico Padoani sul ponte di Rialto all'Insegna della Geografia." Contains some soundings and marked anchorages but the intended use of the map was not for navigation but for general information and decoration.

LOC:9
$480.00Coronelli--VincenzoCoronelli-s-globe-gore-of-the-Arabian-Sea--India-and-Maldive-IslandsUnusual antique hand-colored <b>globe gore</b> by cartographer and Franciscan monk Vincenzo Coronelli (1650 - 1718). Originally produced for <b>Coronelli's 1688 terrestrial globe</b>. This fine engraved gore was included inset with text in his famous island book or "Isolario" published from Venice in 1696 - 1697. <br></br> Ranging from Oman, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi, past the Strait of Hormuz and then trending southeast across Iran, Pakistan and the west coast of India this scarce cartographic curiosity includes the Maldive Islands ("Isole Maldive" ) and west coast of Sri Lanka. Among the many noted towns and villages in India are Mumbai ("Bombaim"), <b>Hyderabad ("Golconda")</b> , and Madurai ("Madura"). <br></br> A globe gore is a 2 dimensional representation on flat paper of a curved segment of the earth's surface. The gores are characterized by their curved top, bottom, and sides. Each gore would have been carefully cut to size and then pasted on a blank globe to produce a finished globe which would have been colored. Typically 12 gores were required to complete the 360 degree circumference of the earth at the latitudes covered by the gore. <br></br> We estimate a globe created with this gore would have had a circumference of about 11 feet. (The gore covers roughtly 30 degrees of longitude or 1/12 of the earths circumference. At the equator, this gore is 11" wide giving us 11" x 12 = 132" circumference or 11 feet.) <br></br> Text on both the recto and verso is Italian. Page 113.

The Specchio del Mare was reissued later by Coronelli in 1697 and bears a strong similarity in paper, format, and typography to Coronelli's Isolario or Island Book.
