Attractive miniature map of Azores from Geographiae unisversalis, a German translation of the miniature atlas Le monde ou la geographie universelle by Pierre Duval (Du Val). The maps in this scarce atlas were exact poies of Duval’s maps, with titles replaced with Latin text. They were engraved by Sigmund Gabriel Hipschman and Johann Christoph Beer and published in Nuremberg in 1678, eight years after Duval’s French edition.
