[Amsterdam: circa 1671]. Engraved map with partial hand-coloring. Neat lines 11 1/2 x 14 5/8 inches (29 x 37 cm) but with ample margin; framed. Toned, a few spots, two tape repairs on verso to center fold at extremities the lower of which shows through to the recto, light show through of horizontal lines from corrugated cardboard back board which affects the verso, old Argosy label to verso of frame.
A highly detailed map after the Jansson-Visscher series depicting virtually every settlement along the major rivers and inlets. The map is the first in the series to adopt the new nomenclature of the 1667 Treaty of Breda in which the Dutch officially surrendered New Netherland and names Nova Albania (Albany), Nieu-Jarsey (New Jersey), Nieu Jorck (New York), and Iamaica (Jamaica). While Manhattan is quite small, its large fort is depicted as almost half the island.
