Description

Very attractive map, showing the location of Paradise. Two vignettes depict the Temptation of Adam and Eve, and their Expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Nicolaes Visscher was one of the sons of Claes Jansz Visscher who also made maps for the Bibles printed in Holland. Around 1650 the plates were worn down, so Nicolaes made new ones and there is a distinct difference between father and son: Nicolaes' maps are more refined and for the first time putti are appearing on biblical maps!
