Magnified section of Planiglobii map showing FloridaPremier #1 features a high quality image of the famous 'Planiglobii Terrestris' antique world map, drawn by Johann Baptist Homann in around 1716. This is one of the most decorative eighteenth century world maps. The two hemispheres are surrounded by vivid engravings of natural phenomena such as waterspouts, a rainbow, earthquakes, and a volcano. Wind heads occupy the starry heavens and two cherubs hold the title banner aloft. This is an early example of this map with California presented as an island and a coastline stretching toward Asia labeled Terra Esonis. Nestled between the hemispheres are two detailed celestial maps. Text panels at bottom describe the natural phenomena.

The image shows a magnified section of the map containing part of Florida, showing the level of detail in the original of this image.
