[Northeast] Blaeu, Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova. Amsterdam, 1635 (1644-55). 15¼ x 19½. Original color. Light age-toning, else VG. A beautiful and important map. The coast is largely derived from Dutch trader Adriaen Block's manuscript map but with changes such as Cape Cod being reconnected to the mainland. Inland Lake Champlain (Lacus Irocoisiensis) is too far south and east. Sources of the Delaware and Hudson Rivers are separate. North is to the right. The map is illustrated with sailing ships and canoes in the ocean; the interior abounds with wildlife such as deer, turkey, beaver, wolves and bears. Depictions of Indian villages from De Bry are also seen. Burden #241; McCorkle #635.1; Van der Krogt #9310:2. $4,500.00
