A rare version of a world map, drawn after the itself rare Arias Montanus world map of 1571 (published in Antwerp in Plantin's Polyglot Bible), and shortly mentioned in Shirley's Corrigenda and Addenda (#125) without giving the source. Cartographic outline and text have been clearly copied from the Montanus map. However, the decorative features, like windheads, seamonsters, ships, etc. have been omitted. It was first published in a 9-volume bible commentary by John Pearson, entitled 'Critici Sacri: sive Annotata doctissimorum virorum in Vetus ac Novum Testamentum...' in 1660 in London (Wing P-994A). However, the engraver arranged the text of this variant map - published later by Janssonius van Waesberge in the 1698 Amsterdam edition of the same work - in very different tables, and below the map are vivid scenes of the Garden of Eden (left) and the deluge (right), which do not appear on any of the earlier versions of the map.
