Rare chart of the Atlantic Ocean, from the first edition of Hendrick Doncker's Zee-Atlas, of which no surviving example is known.
Although the idea of its unusual coverage is derived from the Theunis Jacobsz chart of 1650, Doncker here introduces independent cartography. Most obvious is the difference in depiction of the rivers, for example the Amazon. The coast of Newfoundland and the New Netherlands also differ. "Gebroken lant" is introduced to name Long Island. No mention is made of the English presence in New England, the entire territory being named "Nieu Nederlant".
In 1672 he introduced another similar plate, and later made use of a revised Colom plate.
Reference: Burden, America 338, state 1.
