SPEED, J. - A Map of New York and New England


SPEED, J. - A Map of New York and New England
A Map of New York and New England - SPEED, J.



Title : A Map of New York and New England.
Map maker : SPEED, J..
Date : Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell: London, 1676.
Size : 17.2 x 22.0 inches. / 43.8 x 55.9 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :In 1676, the English publishers Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell issued an important edition of John Speed's popular atlas, "The Theatre of the Empire of Great-Britain." In the atlas's addendum, entitled "A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World", the publishers added new maps of the English colonies in New England, Virginia and Maryland, Carolina, Jamaica and Barbados, and Bermuda.
The atlas and its appealing maps first introduced many potential colonists to the possibilities of immigrating to the New World.
The “Map of New England and New York” was perhaps one of the most important of these additions to the atlas and based upon the Jansson-Visscher prototype map “Belgii Novi” first published in Amsterdam in1651.
Engraved by Francis Lamb it maintains the same scale as the Jansson-Visscher but is slightly smaller in size, stopping short to the west and to the south. Other differences include the redrawing of the Susquehanna River with many of the bends removed, and the heads of the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays have been brought closer together.
Many of the place names have been changed to English and the name Boston now appears in place of London (Mass.).
On the back of the map Lamb includes a description of New York and one of New England. In each, the history of the colony’s discovery, climate, topography, indigenous people, natural history and trade is outlined in detail.

Condition : Some very light outer marginal discolouration. Dark impression. Very good.
