Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova

Jansson, Jan





Copper-engraved map, hand-colored in outline, colored vignettes & cartouche. 39x50 cm. (15½x19½").

Influential map first issued in 1636, which Burden notes as "derived from the less well circulated Johannes de Laet of 1630. Enlarged, and expanded to the north and east slightly, it carries de Laet's narrative on the reverse. De Laet's map is one of extreme importance, being the first to use the names Manbattes (Manhattan) and N. Amsterdam. The nomenclature is also virtually identical, with the few minor differences most likely owing to engraver's error. C. of Feare is still depicted over 2o too far south. This is not the Cape Fear we know of today but actually Cape Lookout." This is the second state of the map, with re-engraved cartouche (following the design of Blaeu and shortening the title), and with vignettes of animals and an Indian village in the interior. Latin text on verso, with catchword America and signature Ccc. From the Atlas Novus. Burden 247, state 2; Cumming SE 43.

Due to the size and/or weight of this lot extra charges may apply.
