Map of the colony Berbice

Map of the colony Berbice
 
 

Title Leupe: Generaale Caart van de Geoctr. Colonie de Berbice, rivieren en districten met al de daarin gelegene plantagies, gronden en vaarbare kreken enz.
This map followed the rejection of the proposal of De Veije from 1764 (VEL1571).
In 1769 the directors decided to retain Fort Nassau as the main settlement after all, and consequently on this 1772 general map of Berbice by the land surveyor J.H. Hagen, which is copied from a map that was published by the Van Keulen firm in 1771 and made by his colleague Christiaan Frederik Theodosius Cederkreutz who originated from Sweden, there is no reference whatsoever to De Veije’s plans.
The location and quantity of plantation appears copied from De Veije’s map.
North is upper right.
Scale-bar of 3800 Rhineland rods of 2 German miles of 15 for one degree = [approximately 1 : 107,000].
