Description:

Novissima & exactissima totius ORBIS TERRARUM TABULA... Nuremburg, David Funcke (1680-1725), c.1700.

A close copy of De Wit's world map from his maritime atlas of 1668, with beautiful allegorical scenes representing the Four Elements in the corners, and polar projections in the cusps. It is possible that it was engraved by Johann Baptiste Homann, who worked for Funcke as an engraver before starting his own business. At least two of Funcke's maps were later re-published by Homann, including this one.
