Map of Nieuw Nederland.

Novi Belgii Novae que Angliae Nec Non Partis Virginae Tabula multis in locis emendata / Nieuw Amsterdam op t Eylant Manhattans.

This map of what is now known as New England was published by Nicolaas Visscher II (1649-1702). For this edition Visscher first copied a chart from 1651 by Johannes Janssonius and subsequently added a view of New Amsterdam (today's Manhattan). The map is highly detailed: almost every European settlement which existed at that time has been depicted.

Key: A-K.

For the view of Manhattan: Cf. National Archives, The Hague, inv. nr. VELHO619.14 and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, inv. nr. NG-28 and ibid, inv. nr. NG-20-D.
