DANCKERTS, DANCKER. Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis, Auctore D. D. Double-page engraved world map. 450x620 mm, wide margins; full hand-color to style; very heavily, but expertly, restored: backed with tissue repairing long tears, remargined, approximately 15% of the image reinstated in expert facsimile, contemporary ink manuscript cleaned off verso. Considering its faults, the map presents as a very nice example. See Shirley 477, apparently erroneously attributing to Dirck Davidszoon. sold as is. [Amsterdam, circa 1660]
