About this Item

Single sheet (20 x 23 4/8 inches; 15 3/8 x 19 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved map of the east cost of North America unusually oriented to the south, showing the area from Chesapeake Bay in Virginia to Penscabot Bay in New France, the title and scale within fine allegorical cartouches, decorated with images of Native American villages, Native Americans in their canoes, European ships, two compass roses, numerous rhumb lines, wild animals, lakes and forests, all with fine original hand-colouring in part and in outline, Latin text on verso (a little browned). "This important map was one of the most attractive of the Americas at the time" (Burden) A fine map from Blaeu's "Theatrum orbis terrarum, sive atlas novus. Pars secunda", the "Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova"'s "primary source is the first manuscript figurative map of Adrien Block, 1614. Indeed it is the first full representation of it in print. It is one of the earliest to name "Nieu Amsterdam" (Burden). Publication of this New World Atlas, or "Atlas Novus" was originally begun by Joannes's father Willem Blaeu with the publication in 1635 of two volumes (consisting of The World, Europe, Arctic, Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Germany and the Low Countries; and France, Spain, Asia, Africa and America), and published in four languages (German, Dutch, Latin and French). After succeeding his father, Joannes Blaeu progressively expanded the "Atlas Novus" to six volumes by 1655, and this formed the first half the "Atlas Maior," extending to 11 or 12 volumes by 1662.
