Novi Belgii: Novaeque Angliae Nec Non Partis Virginiae Tabula, c.1685

List Price: $52.00
Description:

This map published by Iusto Danckers circa 1685 was his second issue of this very important Claus Visscher map of New York and New England. With its inset drawing of New York, the original 1656 map gave Europeans their first view of New Amsterdam in America just three decades after the Dutch began to settle Manhattan in earnest in 1625. This map was used as a "recruiting" poster to attract Dutch colonists to bolster Holland's claims to the region by depicting the English-dominated regions of New England asand New York as predominantly Dutch.
