Title : Nova Anglia Novum Belgium et Virginia..
Map maker : JANSSONIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1636.
Size : 15.2 x 19.8 inches. / 38.7 x 50.4 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.
Description :In the 1636 edition of the Appendix, Johannes Janssonius inserted this important and influential map of the eastern seaboard from C. of Feare (Cape Lookout) to Nova Scotia, based on Johannes de Laet's prototype map. De Laet was a director of the Dutch West India Company, which controlled the Dutch penetration of the Americas. It is one of the earliest attempts on a Dutch map to show the Great Lakes in any form. Janssonius shows an unnamed lake (probably Lake Champlain), a Lac de Yroquois (Ontario?) and further west a Grand Lac, which Tooley holds to be Lake Superior.
First state, with the heart-shaped cartouche.
Janssonius was one of the first printed maps to include several important place names, such as New Amsterdam, Manhattes (a version of Manhattan), Fort Orange (Albany), and Plymouth. The area of present-day Maine is called Norembegua. With Latin text on verso.
Reference: Karpinski, Maps of famous cartographers, pp.26,31,Pl.II: On the Map, fig.10. Gooses, Mapping of North America no.29. Burden, America 247. A first state.
Condition : Paper slightly age-toned. With a few very light brown spotting in the right half of the map, otherwise in excellent condition.
