KEULEN, Johannes van (1678-1727)

Pas-kaart vande zee-kusten van Terra Nova, met de byleggende zee-kusten van Francia Nova, Canada en Accadie van c. de Sables tot de mond vande straad davids.

      - Amsterdam: Johannes van Keulen, [1687]. Copper-engraved map, period hand- colouring in outline. 20 7/8 x 24 inches. Van Keulen's 17th century chart of the Maritime Canada, here with period hand-colouring. This map accurately depicts the Grand Banks, though is somewhat more fanciful regarding the coasts of Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia, indicative of the Dutch charts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in this early period. This chart appeared in editions of both Van Keulen's Zee-Fakkel and Zee- Atlas. The present copy is an example of Burden's second state (of 4), with the page number in the lower left corner but without a shoal added to the coastline of Nova Scotia. Burden, The Mapping of North America 584; Kershaw, Early Printed Maps of Canada 188.
