¤ Splendide mappemonde à bordures en projection de Mercator. Visscher reprend le modèle cartographique de Blaeu mais corrige et amende la carte pour y faire apparaître de nouvelles découvertes dans la baie d'Hudson. Richement ornée, les bordures supérieure et inférieure représentent 12 empereurs romains, alors que les bordures latérales représentent des vues de villes et des personnages en costume indigène. Dans les angles, 4 médaillons figurent les allégories des 4 continents.
- This stunning "carte-a-figures" world map on Mercator's projection is one of the most richly decorated maps from the Dutch period of pre-eminence in cartography. While the cartography is similar to Blaeu, Visscher's map has been updated to show the discoveries around Hudson Bay and shows the St. Lawrence River extending to a small lake in the middle of North America.
Two polar insets fill the bottom corners and a cartouche in the interior of North America tells of the discovery of America by Columbus, but erroneously dates the voyage to 1592. The magnificent panels surrounding the map include twelve Roman emperors on richly caparisoned horses at the top and bottom, and six groups of national figures and six vignettes of principal cities at the sides.
The corners are filled with female allegorical representations of the continents: Europe in a pastoral setting, Asia seated on a camel, America as a warrior queen riding an armadillo, and Africa reclining on a crocodile. The map originated in 1639, this being the 1652 issue with Visscher's name and date near the inset of the South Pole. - Shirley, World, 350.

¤ De l'Isle approach was much more scientific than that of his predecessors, and any area about which he did not have enough information was simply left blank. He removed the great southern continent, only including a small island supposed to have been seen by Sir Francis Drake. His outline of Australia is taken from that of Tasman and he does however add Dampier's discovery of Sharks Bay (1700) and inserts his track.

¤ Grande mappemonde gravée par W. Godson, publiée par G. Willdey. Elle est ornée d'hémisphères célestes et de projections au pôle. La Californie est représentée en tant qu'île. De plus cette carte indique les courants maritimes et les variations magnétiques d'après les théories de Halley.
- Large scale, robustly engraved English double hemisphere map of the world by W.Godson. California as an island. Beside the cartographic content, the map has a wealth of descriptive text within the spheres. Among the interesting features are Halley's theories of water currents and magnetic variations, boldly engraved within the spheres. In upper and lower part celestial hemispheres and around the spheres are various maps of the world on different projections.
Published by George Willdey. Willdey seems to have been a wheeler-dealer, whose shop was stocked with all manner of goods and commodities, many of which are listed and illustrated on some of his maps, including spectacles, scientific instruments, cutlery, toys, snuff, and so on.
The map side of his business seems not to have been very successful, and few examples of the atlas or single sheet maps survive today.
