Image kindly provided by Jonathan Potter Antique Maps

This map, The Island of Saint Hellena by Iohn Seller (145 116 mm), is a miniature version of Seller's A New Mapp of the Island of St. Hellena which was first published in 1675 in the Atlas Maritimus. This miniature map appeared in subsequent pocket-size editions of the Atlas Maritimus (e.g., 1682) as well as in other publications by Seller, such as A New Systeme of Geography (1685; 1690), Hydrographia Universalis (1690?), and Atlas Terrestris (1700?).

It is this map that is illustrated (facing page 96) in Gosse's St. Helena, 1502-1938.
