1700 SCHERER WORLD MAP OF MAGELLAN'S VOYAGE UNUSUAL PROJECTION BEAUTIFUL
1700 SCHERER WORLD MAP OF MAGELLAN'S VOYAGE UNUSUAL PROJECTION BEAUTIFUL
This is an unusual world map tracking Magellan's voyages from Jesuit cartographer, Heinrich Scherer. In its north polar projection of the world, Magellan’s circumnavigation is tracked and dated. The myth of California as an island continues. On the left is an engraving of Victoria, the only remaining ship from Magellan’s armada. On the right, the few survivors of the voyage are shown making their way to the Santa María de la Victoria church in Seville, where they go to give thanks for their safe return. The date, from the cartouche above the scene, is September 7, 1522; the number of men is 18 out of the original 237 From map: Repræsentatio geographica itineris maritimi navis Victoriæ in qua ex personis CCXXXVII finita navigatione rediere tantum XVIII quæ solo indusio tectæ et faces accensas manibus præferentes in basilica hispalensi se voto exsolverunt VII Sept. ann. MDXXII
