[Maps & Atlases] Janssonius, Johannes
Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova

Amstelodami: Johannes Janssonius, (1652). 19 1/8 x 22 1/2 in. (486 x 571 mm). Second state. Hand-colored engraved map depicting the east coast of North America, from Nova Scotia to Virginia; Dutch text on verso, from the Nieuwen Atlas edition of 1652. Creasing from original fold, repaired bottom verso of same; recto darkened with scattered offsetting; small chipping to corners. In mat and frame, 24 1/4 x 28 3/4 in. (616 x 730 mm). Burden 248

Johannes Janssonius's influential map of the eastern coast of North America, depicting Nova Scotia down to Virginia, and showing Manhattan (printed as Manbattes), New Amsterdam, Cape Cod, and the Chesapeake Bay region. It was derived from Johannes de Laet's map of 1630, and was first produced by Janssonius under a different title in 1636. Janssonius altered the title in 1647 to match that of Willem Blaeu, giving greater prominence to the Dutch colonies, while also drawing on his design for the cartouche, the depictions of wild life, and the Indian village scene in the top left corner.
