Die neüwen Inseln-- so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem land Indie ligen / [Sebastian Münster].

A hand-colored map of the New World. The map appeared first in the 1540 Geographia Universalis published by Henircus Petri, and then in later editions of the Cosmographia. The map is the earliest known separate map of the Americas, with the two continents as an integral landmass. An illustration of Magellan's ship Victoria is in the Pacific, and there is an illustration depicting cannibalism in what is today Brazil. The estuaries of both the Amazon and the Rio del Plata are displayed, but not labeled, in South America. North America reflects Verrazzano's misapprehension of a large inland sea bordered by a narrow isthmus, with the Pacific and Japan (Zipangri) just beyond. A corner of India superior is at the top left; the western edge of northern Africa and Spain are visible on the right edge. The map labels are written in German and Latin. Relief is shown pictorially.

William L. Finley Papers, 1899-1946

  • MSS Finley
  • Collection
  • 1899 - 1946

William L. Finley's papers primarily document his work as a wildlife conservationist, author, lecturer, photographer, and filmmaker from about 1900 to 1940. The collection also documents the work his wife Irene Finley and photography partner Herman Bohlman. The collection consists of published and unpublished manuscripts, lecture and field notes, reports, correspondence, photographs and motion picture films.

An addition to the collection (Accession 2014:062) is made up of correspondence and newspaper clippings documenting the wildlife conservation work of William and Irene Finley. Among the topics addressed in the correspondence include: song bird protection laws in Oregon, requests to Finley for use of his photographs, the forming of an Oregon Fish and Game Commission, biological surveys conducted by Finley, legislation in California repealing meadowlark protection, and letters by Finley to various organizations regarding the presentation of one of his lectures. A highlight among the correspondence is a thank you letter from Finley to President Theodore Roosevelt for his establishment of wild bird reservations. The clippings are newspaper articles written by Irene and William Finley about encounters with wildlife, nocturnal bird sounds, and their filming of wildlife at Paulina Lake. The four articles all appeared in editions of the "Oregon Sunday Journal."
