Map of the East coast - USA - North America

"Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii in America Septentrionali ... "

We offer a beautiful and old-coloured copper engraving map by Seutter Matthäus. This interesting and very rare copper engraving map show of the North America East coast including a faithful rendition of the famous Restitutio View of Manhattan.
The map itself is from the influential Jansson-Visscher series, which formed the basis for the mapping of the Atlantic seaboard and New England for nearly one hundred years. The cartography follows Visscher's modifications and includes much new information that reflects the Anglicization that had occurred during the period of English rule (1664-1673). Lacus Irocoisiensis (Lake Champlain) remains radically misplaced to the east of the Connecticut River, the St. Lawrence River and Ottawa River are intertwined, and the coast of New England is still imperfectly mapped. The map shows the locations of many native tribes, with two fortified native villages shown. A wide variety of animals are illustrated throughout the map with cows and chickens as well as elk, bear, fox and wild turkeys.
