¤ The traditional decorative borders of many seventeenth-century world maps have disappeared. Seutter's twin central hemispheres are surrounded by eight smaller projections depicting the world from various angles, and four smaller circular diagrams. The map is a close copy of that by Carel Allard (1696), the cross-hatched background is changed into many wind blowing angels. On this map Hokkaido is even larger than Honshu and both islands are connected. California is an island. The oceans contain extensive routes of the explorers. New Holland is still incomplete; there is no South Polar continent. An exceptionally well engraved plate, wind heads are visible in the darkly engraved cross-hatched background.
