Title : Nova Anglia Septentrionali Americae implantata Anglorumque coloniis florentissima ... Ioh. Baptista Homann Sac. Caes Maj ... Cum Privilegio ... ..
Map maker : HOMANN, Johann Baptist.
Date : Nurnberg, c.1730.
Size : 19.1 x 22.6 inches. / 48.5 x 57.5 cm.
Colouring : Original body colour.

Description :This attractive map shows all of "Nova Anglia" (New England), most of "Nieuw Nederland" (present day New York), "Western and Eastern New Jarsey" (present day New Jersey).  The cartouche shows a European and an Indian with trade goods, alluding to the natural wealth of the region. Various Indian tribe names are identified on the map as are numerous European coastal towns.
Among the details on the map is an interesting representation of the interior of New England and New York - e.g. the map shows an exaggerated Lake Champlain, etc. Along the coast there are also errors in the geography - Cape Cod is shown as an island, the harbor of Boston is exceedingly large, the fictitious "Norumbeag" (on maps of the region since the very earliest maps) is placed above the large "Penebrock" Bay. In spite of this cartographic confusion, this map was considered the standard German map of this region during much of the 18th century. 
Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724), his son, Christoph (1703-30), and heirs are acknowledged to be the most important German map publishing firm of the 18th century. The firm was founded in Nurnberg about 1702. Upon Johann's death, the firm was continued by his son, Christoph until 1730 when the firm passed to the heirs on the condition that they publish under the name "Homann Heirs".   
Goss, The Mapping of North America, Map # 50.
Condition : Fine, clean example, with a professional repair at bottom centrefold on verso.
