Description:
Covering the eastern portion of North America's coastline from North Carolina to Nova Scotia, this influential map appeared in English, German, Latin, Dutch, and French editions of world atlases published by Hondius and Jansson from 1636 - 1653. Reflecting recent English settlement in the New England area, the map carries the familiar place names of, Massachusetts, Plymouth, Boston (Briston), and Cape Cod. Jansson, the son of a mapmaker and publisher, married into a leading Dutch publishing house. With his brother-in-law, he led the Hondius firm in a rivalry with the Blaeu publishing house that spurred Dutch mapmaking to deserved prominence.
