This world map is from the Reales Staats- und Zeitungs-Lexicon. The Lexicon is an example of an early eighteenth-century encyclopedia designed to appeal to educated classes rather than to scholars and concentrated on geography, theology, politics, and contemporary history. It was compiled by Philipp Balthasar Sinold von Schutz (1657-1742), but is often attributed to the writer of the preface, Johann Hubner. Map of the world in two hemispheres contains diagrams of the constellations of the heavens, astronomical movements, and armillary sphere. The northwest part of North America is blank (labeled Terra Esonis), and California is shown as an island. Decorative embellishments include angels, two views of the effect of the sun on the earth, windheads, angels using navigational instruments such as quadrants, telescopes, and compass, and illustrations of different geophysical phenomena of the earth including volcanoes, tides, earthquakes, whirlpools, rainbows, rain, and Norwegian vortexes or waterspouts. Cartographic elements include lines of latitude and longitude, indications of the prevailing winds, and routes of explorers. Based on maps done by the Homann firm. The Homann map publishing firm was founded in 1702 by Johann Baptist Homann and produced maps until the beginning of the nineteenth century.
