One of the most decorative sea charts of the 17th Century. The coastline of the Western Atlantic Ocean is shown from Canada to Venezuela, locating hundreds of place names. East is oriented at the top, placing Cuba and Florida dead center on the map. A richly decorative map, one of the most famous and recognizeable of all sea charts of the region. Van Keulen's general map of the Northwest Atlantic serves as a key map of sorts for the remainder of his North and Central American maps in his Sea Atlas. Lower margin narrow, as issued, but ample for framing. A beautifully colored example of this difficult to attain and highly sought after sea chart.
