Date : Amsterdam 1658.
Size : 16.9 x 21.3 inches. / 43.0 x 54.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :"""A map of 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.
In attractive early 19th century frame.
Reference.: Tooley, The mapping of America, pp.314,119-20,No.29; Karpinski, Maps of famous cartographers depicting North America,p.33; Leighly 56; Burden, America 332, state 1."

Condition : Paper slightly age toned and minor brown staining. Margins cut close and carefully re-margined. Some paper thinness. Nevertheless an attractive item.

ID: 15946
