Title : Novissima et accuratissima Totius Americae. . ..
Map maker : VISSCHER, N..
Date : Amsterdam, 1658.
Size : 16.9 x 21.3 inches. / 43.0 x 54.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :The second state with privilege along the lower margin. A map of importance. . . it became the standard representation of North America for a number of years and was copied by other Dutch and English publishers. (Tooley)
It was the first of the most popular series of maps of the Americas of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The same map, and probably plate, was used by de Wit and others. (Karpinski) With dubious guile, the publishers of the succeeding issues of the map would rearrange the figures in the cartouches and the cartouches themselves, presumably to avert accusations of plagiarism.
The map shows one of the Great Lakes as a large, square-shaped lake open at its western end. The island of California is delineated in the less commonly seen Briggs shape marked by the flattened northern coast.

The map is in a strictly contemporary colouring.
