These three maps were first published in Montanus’s landmark Amerika, perhaps the greatest illustrated book on the New World produced in the 17th century. Montanus’s work contained over one hundred beautifully engraved plates, views and maps of North and South America. Each of these maps contain fine examples of these illustrations and include such exotic creatures as llamas and unicorns along with depictions of native Americans which influenced Europeans’ views of life in these new territories.
