Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae nec non Pennsylvaniae - DANCKERTS, Justus - 1690. [1198133]
1690 - Amsterdam, c.1690. Original colour. 470 x 550mm. The finest original colour we have seen on this map. A scarce map, showing the eastern seaboard of America from Chesapeake Bay north to Pennobscot, with the as-yet unexplored St Lawrence River running across the top. Vignette animals include turkeys, beavers and bears and a Mohawk, based on the De Bry engravings, fills the middle left edge. Bottom right is a version of the Blaeu view of 'Nieuw Amsterdam', regarded as the earliest published view of New York. First published c. 1673, this third and last state has been updated to reflect the new status quo, in which the English dominance is acknowledged: the view has been renamed 'Nieuw Yorck', and Philadelphia, founded 1682, is marked. BURDEN: 434.
