Title : Carte Nouvelle de L'Amerique Angloise Contenant La Virginie, Mary-Land, Caroline, Pensylvania, Nouvelle Jorck, N. Jarsey, N. France...
Map maker : MORTIER, P..
Date : Amsterdam c. 1700.
Size : 23.3 x 35.8 inches. / 59.3 x 91.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :A unique map of eastern North America with oversized Great Lakes. Drawn directly from Robert Morden's significant New Map of the English Empire in America of c.1698.
The most notable feature here is the mountain range extending from the Florida peninsula northwards into Michigan . Pennsylvania includes both Delaware and eastern Maryland and almost bisects New York. Virginia includes western Maryland. The area west of "Caroline" is named "Floride" Georgia is not present. Many towns named along the coast.
"Including Copper Mine near present day Chicago, and Mines of Iron besides the Ohio River, both originating in the Thevenot, 1681. The unusual depiction of Green Bay, the broader northern portion of the Delaware peninsula, the boundaries of Pennsylvania extending far to the north, the altered Cape Cod and the inset plan of Boston harbour are all features found on the Morden map. Indeed, this is the first printing of a plan of an English colonial city in a non-English map" (Burden).
The Mississippi River is noted as "R. Mitchisipi ou Rio Grande." An untitled inset at the left shows Boston Harbor and serves to hide some of the unknown western regions.
Some illustrated topography shows towns, river systems, individual trees to indicate forests and some banks off the coast of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
Relief shown pictorially. It presents a small compass rose on upper right corner.
Condition : Printed on heavy paper. Marginal loss of paper on lower left corner close to copper plate. Very good condition.
