Eastern part of a two sheet map of America, with an attribution to Willem Blaeu. According to Philip Burden the map was derived from Cornelius Danckert's 1647 map of the same title, according to Burden's The mapping of North America, 1996. Previously only known by one example residing in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris until P.Burden identified the second state of this map with the date M DC LXXIX and CANADA an NVOVA FRANCIA now named and the MARE DI VIRGINIA enlarged.. This is the second state and both where at the time only known by one example. The map is very rare with Library of Congress having acquired in 2003 only the western sheet. (2003629916).

The Rossi Family was perhaps the single most famous and prolific map publishing family working in Rome in the second half of the 17th century. Their prolific production and finely engraved multi-sheet maps were at the forefront of a revival in cartographic production in Rome, which had diminished as a center for the production of commercial maps after the demise of the so-called Lafreri School and ascendency of the Dutch School of mapmaking at the end of the 16th century.
Reference: Burden, America, 408.
